EQAO releases 2013-14 provincial assessment results

EQAO has released the results of the 2013-14 provincial assessments, and generally  literacy results are better than mathematics results – although neither show improvement in secondary applied courses. The reports of individual  schools will be released in September: elementary on September 17,  and high school will be the following week.

From their news release:

“Literacy success rates continue to improve in Ontario elementary schools with each passing year. Grade 3 math achievement rates have remained the same though they have dropped again for students in Grade 6.

A review of Grade 6 student math responses shows students consistently do best demonstrating their math knowledge and least well applying that knowledge, particularly in problem solving.

In secondary schools, math success rates have been improving steadily for the past five years for students in both the academic and applied courses. However, more than half the students in the applied course are still not meeting the provincial standard.

Of the Grade 10 students who were eligible to write the Ontario Secondary Literacy Test (OSSLT) for the first time in 2014, 83% were successful, maintaining a high level of literacy achievement. Results show the success rate on the OSSLT for students in applied English courses has, however, been decreasing each year for the past five years.

Persistently low success rates for students in both the applied English and applied math courses suggest a review of those courses is warranted.”
