EQAO scores show mixed results for Waterloo Region school boards

EQAO scores show mixed results for Waterloo Region school boards”

The Windsor-Essex Catholic School Board did so well in the 2016 EQAO math testing that Ministry of Education representatives will meet with board officials to learn what they're doing right.

The Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board scored above the provincial average on all math and literacy standardized tests past year.

It saw major increases in Grade 9 applied math scores where 61% of students reached the provincial standard- that's 17% above the provincial average.

"HWDSB is entering its second year of implementing the Renewed Math Strategy, as part of its vision of students moving towards graduation", said a school board statement.

The number of Catholic grade six students passing the test dropped to 47 per cent from 48 per cent the year before. That is, however, above the provincial average of 44%. However, the 47 per cent of Grade 9 applied math students who met the standard represents a drop of 12 per cent over a year ago.

Grade 6 students are showing long-term improvement in reading and writing skills, with math results are falling.

Despite the dismal math results all around, the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board celebrated the leveling off of a steady decline in math scores in Hamilton and across the province.

That board was above the provincial average in Grade 3, Grade 6 and in both Grade 9 academic and applied math.

At the Grade 6 level, scores are increasing in reading and writing while staying level in math.

-Compared to past year, primary scores increased 3 per cent and junior scores increased by 2 per cent. It was at 54 per cent four years ago. The GECDSB scores for both grade 9 academic and applied mathematics remain 3 per cent above the provincial scores.

The board said students in applied English were down four percentage points from past year. Over the last five years, the overall success rate on the OSSLT has remained high and relatively unchanged ranging between 79 per cent and 80 per cent.

EQAO has also released results for the Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT), which are summarized in the charts below.
