EQAO has released the results of the Grade 9 Math and Grade 10 literacy (OSSLT) provincial testing for 2014-2015. All of the links below (EQAO and TDSB) take you to pages where there are additional documents, videos, links and information.

EQAO Math results : Note that  for 2014-2015 Results: Provincial results for EQAO’s 2014–2015 Grade 9 math assessment for the English-language school system are not available. Due to labour disruptions, not all schools in that system participated.

TDSB has published its math results in this News Release,  based information released by the TDSB Research Centre.

Academic Mathematics Results:  Over the past five years (2010-11 to 2014-15), the percentage of Grade 9 students who performed at or above the provincial standard (Levels 3 and 4) increased 1% in Academic Mathematics (81% to 82%).

Applied Mathematics Results : Over the past five years (2010-11 to 2014-15), the percentage of Grade 9 students who performed at or above the provincial standard increased 4% in Applied Mathematics (30% to 34%).

See the EQAO OSSLT results: From the pdf: 

This group of students represents all the students in Ontario who wrote the OSSLT for the first time in 2015.

  • 82% were successful.
  • 18% were not.

One of the things we know about the Grade 10 students who are unsuccessful on the OSSLT is that the majority also had not met the literacy standard when they were in Grade 6.

This means that for most of these students, their EQAO results four years earlier were a red flag that they were struggling with their literacy skills.

While it’s encouraging that the percentage of students meeting the reading standard in Grade 6 has been steadily increasing for many years, new strategies are needed to support students who do not meet the standard so they can turn their literacy struggles around by Grade 10.
