Overall Grade 9 Student Achievement in the French-Language System
Tracking the Progress of Students from Grade 6 to 9 in the French-Language System
"EQAO results have proven to be a key measure of accountability in Ontario’s education system and an important tool for improvement planning. The fact that we have lost the ability to assess what’s going on in the English-language system this year is regrettable—particularly in the applied math course, which we know has had persistently low achievement rates for some time."
—Dave Cooke, Chair, EQAO
" It’s encouraging to note the positive trends in students’ achievement as they progress from Grade 6 to Grade 9 in the French-language system. This suggests many students are getting the right supports to overcome their early math struggles. The provincial tests are an important way to assess this progress each year, so we can ensure that all students have the math essentials they need to be successful in school and beyond."
—Bruce Rodrigues, Chief Executive Officer, EQAO
