In November (2015), the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) publicly released the school and school-board results from its Grade 9 EQAO Math Assessment from the 2014-2015 school year. EQAO reports provide school communities with information that contributes to understanding each student’s achievement in relation to the provincial standard.
“Our EQAO results give us valuable data over time, and our staff use this data to analyze school trends and develop next steps for instruction. We continue to make small but steady gains, as we work to ensure that we are able to sustain the strategies and interventions we are implementing.” Director Reece
Improvement was demonstrated by ADSB students enrolled in academic level math with 80% of students achieving at or above provincial standard, up by 4% from last year. For ADSB students enrolled in applied level math, 46% of students achieved at or above provincial standard, down by 5% from last year. Secondary schools in the ADSB will continue to engage in numeracy collaborative inquiries in Grade 9 math classes, continue to build connections with Grade 7 and 8 teachers, and continue with the implementation of balanced mathematics programs.
Due to labour actions in June 2015, provincial results for students will not be released for the Grade 9 EQAO Math Assessment.
