Media Advisory - EQAO to Release Local Results of the 2014-2015 Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics and to Profile 9 Schools

TORONTO, Oct. 27, 2015 /CNW/ - At 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) will release student achievement results for each school and school board that participated fully in the 2014–2015 Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics. Secondary schools and their boards will be able to speak about their results at that time. The school and board results will be posted on the EQAO Web site at www.eqao.com.

EQAO will also release a full provincial report on the Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics for the French-language school system. The provincial report includes results for subgroups, school contextual data and a summary of assessment findings.

Provincial-level results for the English-language school system are not available this year, as not all schools in that system participated due to labour disruptions. As a result no provincial report for the English-language school system will be published this year.

EQAO will also profile a number of schools from around the province that are using provincial assessment results to support their improvement planning. The profiled schools are notable for their demonstration of leadership, data-driven strategies and whole-school approaches to help every child succeed. The schools profiled will be posted on the EQAO Web site; www.eqao.com.

The following are the schools in Ontario being profiled this year:
