Your child’s EQAO results are an important, objective indicator of his or her reading, writing and mathematics achievement in relation to the provincial standard. The descriptions of student performance on EQAO assessments in this guide will provide you with a clearer picture of what an EQAO level designation means in terms of your child’s performance on the assessments. This guide also suggests some specific strategies that you can use to support your child’s learning.
These sample Individual Student Reports show how students receive their results for the province-wide primary- and junior-division Assessments of Reading, Writing and Mathematics.
This resource was developed to assist teachers in identifying their students’ strengths and areas that need improvement and in observing trends related to thinking and learning skills in each subject. Teachers will be able to use this resource to inform their own diagnostic, formative and summative assessments and to observe trends in student performance in order to help plan instruction that will support student improvement.
