This year’s Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) tests are in, and local schools saw improvements in some areas.
At the Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB), Grade 3 students did three per cent better in reading and mathematics, while Grade 6 students were up two per cent in reading and writing. For the Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test, scores were up seven per cent since the last tests.
That’s despite a shift to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, with EQAO testing on hold until this year.
“I am so proud of the work that TLDSB teachers, designated early childhood educators, and support staff have been doing to support student learning after nearly three school years in a pandemic,” says Wes Hahn, the board’s Director of Education. “The data TLDSB received from the EQAO assessments adds yet another key piece to help us make informed decisions at both the board and school levels, and to set new targets.”
