EQAO releases examples of actual questions from its previous assessment booklets to help students, parents and educators get familiar with the format of the assessment and the type of questions asked. We provide scoring guides and sample student responses to show how the assessments are scored and what student responses at each score code look like. The last five years of released assessment materials are available.
EQAO releases approximately half of its test questions (called “items”) each year. This process allows EQAO to build up a bank of items that can be used in future years. For the language component of the junior-division assessment, there is a description of the questions that were not released, with a reference to the skill that these questions assessed.
