Student Use of Writing Strategies:
" EQAO administers questionnaires in order to provide contextual information about students, which is helpful for interpreting achievement results. Ontario’s education system benefits from having good data, both for accountability and improvement-planning purposes. It’s regrettable that we don’t have this important information for the English-language system this year."
—Dave Cooke, Chair, EQAO
" So much attention has appropriately been given to improving math achievement, and it’s great to see math results improving. We must be vigilant to ensure that we continue to pay appropriate attention to reading, writing and mathematics, so that one discipline is not unduly affected by the attention given to another. The information that comes from the student questionnaires could hold some insights into how to continue on the path to greater success."
—Bruce Rodrigues, Chief Executive Officer, EQAO
