2019 EQAO results for Primary, Junior, Grade 9 and 10 assessments

September 25, 2019—Student achievement results for provincial assessments written last spring were released throughout the province today.

The provincial assessments, commonly referred to as EQAO tests, offer insights into whether students are meeting curriculum expectations in reading, writing and math at key stages of their education, as well as students’ attitudes and habits towards learning.

“The achievement results for HPEDSB are concerning. The data shows that our students continue to perform below the province. The results are static in some areas of reading and writing and continue to trend downwards in mathematics. We want to see a better outcome than this for our students,” said Tina Elliott, Superintendent of Curriculum Services.

These student achievement results show we have work to do at HPEDSB, starting at the central office level through to the classrooms. We are going to pause and think about how we can work differently and more closely with our classroom and school educators to reverse the achievement trends.

“We believe our students are capable of more, of a higher level of success. In fact, these achievement results do not reflect the commitment our educators show each and every day to students in support of their learning. We have first-class educators and support staff at HPEDSB. Together with their guidance and the partnership of our families, our school board will continue to be diligent in reversing this trend in support of all students first and all students achieving,” added Elliott.
