From EQAO: EQAO celebrates Five Ontario Elementary Schools for their Math Strategies that Work

  • This year’s profiled school stories highlight Catholic and French-language elementary schools. Due to labour disruptions in 2015, EQAO’s provincial assessments were not administered in English-language public elementary schools.
  • EQAO reports have revealed that from 2009–2010 to 2013–2014, provincial Grade 3 mathematics results declined by four percentage points, and Grade 6 results declined by seven percentage points in English-language schools. These school stories show significant trends in the opposite direction.
  • EQAO results have provided evidence about student achievement that has contributed to system-wide actions, such as the Ministry of Education’s newly launched math strategy, additional funding for teacher training, reviews of math pedagogy and curriculum, as well as a renewed focus on the math qualifications of new teacher candidates.
  • Each year, EQAO identifies and celebrates schools that have been using data to improve student achievement. The outcomes at these schools show how good information can help education-system professionals identify areas for improvement in their programs. EQAO shares these stories so that other schools throughout Ontario can learn about successful practices.

Read the stories,  listen to the teachers (videos) talk about the strategies they implemented. Check it out!
