EQAO Testing Score
Every year the grade 3 and 6 students participate in provincial wide standardized testing called the EQAO (Education Quality and Accountability Office) tests. EQAO is an independent agency which was created to measure student’s achievements in Reading, Writing and Math. This is independent to Ontario schools only. These tests are designed to be administered during key periods of the students learning (grade 3, grade 6, grade 9 and grade 10).
The goal of standardized EQAO testing is to assess the quality of education the students are receiving in that particular school. Since all students are given the same tests across the province it creates a valid comparison amongst each other.
The testing scores reported on the EQAO website shows the percentage of students who have performed above provincial average. For example, if the school has a math score of 75%, this means from the number students who participated in the EQAO test, 75% of those students scored above the provincial EQAO math average.
Looking at the chart above we can see the percentage of students who have performed above the EQAO grade 3 average for Worthington Public School. You can see the Year-To-Year comparison in the three tested categories (reading, writing & Math). Comparing 2013-2015 with the 2015-2017 testing scores, Worthington Public School has improved on average by 5%.
