Media Advisory - Education Quality and Accountability Office to Release Ontario Student Results on National Reading, Math and Science Test

TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2011 /CNW/ - At 10:00 a.m. on Monday, November 28, 2011, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) will release Ontario student results from the 2010 Pan-Canadian Assessment Program (PCAP) test.

PCAP is an initiative of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada, that administers a test of Grade 8 students' achievement in reading, mathematics and science every three years. In Ontario, it is coordinated by EQAO on behalf of the provincial government. The 2010 assessment was administered to 3374 students in 144 English-language schools and 2509 students in 142 French-language schools in the province.

Reading, mathematics and science assessment items were administered to randomly selected students in a random sample of schools through a random assignment of test booklets. Individual student, school and school board results are therefore not available.

Highlights of the provincial results and a complete Pan-Canadian Assessment Program, 2010: Ontario Report will be available on EQAO's Web site, www.eqao.com, as of 10:00 a.m. on November 28.
