EQAO Testing Update

Between May 26 and June 3, 2014 from 8:30-10:30 am, Jockvale’s Grade 3 students will be taking part in the provincial Assessment of Reading, Writing and Mathematics, Primary Division (Grades 1–3) created by the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO). This assessment is administered to all Grade 3 students in Ontario’s publicly funded school system.

 

Attendance and Punctuality on these days is essential. Please ensure your child is on time, as well as no medical appointments are booked during this morning block of time.

EQAO assessment questions are directly based on the expectations set out in The Ontario Curriculum, so your child does not need to prepare in any special way. Students will take the assessment in their regular classrooms with their regular teachers and are simply encouraged to do their best and show what they know.

 

Your child’s results on this assessment are private and will give an indication of his or her achievement in relation to the provincial standard. The results do not affect your child’s grades nor report card in any way. They will, however, give information about your child’s learning to add to the overall picture of his or her progress.

 

Student results on EQAO assessments are an important source of information about student strengths and areas needing improvement. We can use them as a school community, along with other information, to guide our school improvement initiatives for reading, writing and mathematics. This benefits not only your child but all the students in the school. The results are also used by our school board and the Ministry of Education to direct attention and resources where they are needed.
