Each year, students in grades 3 and 6 undergo a set of Ministry of Education assessments in reading, writing and mathematics. During the months of May and June, students in grade 3 and 6 will participate in province-wide EQAO testing. These assessments provide information for the government, teachers, students and parents on the achievement levels of students in Ontario. They also provide valuable information for improving student learning and can enhance instructional planning. Parents will receive an individual report of their child’s results in the Fall.
It is very important that all students in these grades are available to write the tests. This year, EQAO testing for both grades 3 and 6 will take place between May 25th and June 3rd. We ask that you do not schedule appointments for your child during this time so we can minimize disruptions and distractions as well as avoid any makeup session for students.
Thank you in advance for your support. Additional information about the EQAO test is available at www.eqao.com.
