TORONTO, Oct. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - At 9:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, October 7, 2014, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) will release Ontario student results from the 2013 Pan-Canadian Assessment Program (PCAP) test.
PCAP is a program of national standardized tests of reading, math and science skills that are administered every three years to Grade 8 students. It is an initiative of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC). The participation of Ontario students is coordinated by the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) on behalf of the provincial government.
The 2013 assessment was administered to 3208 students in 150 English-language schools and 2180 students in 125 French-language schools in Ontario. Since the assessment is administered to a random sample of students in a random sample of schools, individual student, school and school board results are not available.
Highlights of the provincial results and a complete Pan-Canadian Assessment Program, 2013: Ontario Report will be available on EQAO's Web site, www.eqao.com, as of 9:00 a.m. on October 7.
