EQAO is committed to building capacity for the use of data through articles, workshops, school stories and programs like the Dr. Bette M. Stephenson Recognition of Achievement. EQAO has an active research program that investigates factors that influence student achievement, school effectiveness and best assessment practices.
EQAO’s School Support and Outreach team works collaboratively with schools and school boards to develop professional learning programs that incorporate EQAO’s latest research and data. These programs are designed to assist educators and administrators in leveraging EQAO data and navigating the agency’s modernized assessments to support student success. The innovative, successful practices of schools and boards are also collected and shared with the education community to further support student success.
