In January and June of 2019, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) administered assessments in Mathematics to Grade 9 students across Ontario. Students enrolled in Grade 9 Applied and Academic Mathematics courses in the first semester wrote the assessment in January. Students enrolled in second-semester and full-year courses wrote the assessment in June. At the time of the assessments, the TDSB had 13,199 Grade 9 students in Academic Mathematics courses and 3,062 Grade 9 students in Applied Mathematics courses.
The assessment measures how well students have met the provincial expectations in The Ontario Curriculum by the end of Grade 9. EQAO develops separate versions of the assessment for students in Applied and Academic courses. These assessments contain questions that require written responses as well as multiple-choice questions.
Student performance is evaluated using a four-level scale that is consistent with the four levels in The Ontario Curriculum.
- Level 4 (80-100%): The student has demonstrated a very high to outstanding level of achievement. Achievement is above the provincial standard.
- Level 3 (70-79%): The student has demonstrated a high level of achievement. Achievement is at the provincial standard.
- Level 2 (60-69%): The student has demonstrated some of the required knowledge and skills. Achievement is below, but approaching, the provincial standard.
- Level 1 (50-59%): The student has demonstrated a passable level of achievement. Achievement is below the provincial standard.
The following results are reported for all students in the course, including those students with no data and below Level 1. "Below Level 1" means the student has not demonstrated sufficient achievement of curriculum expectations (below 50%).
Percentage of All Grade 9 TDSB Students Who Performed At or Above the Provincial Standard (Levels 3 and 4) in Academic Mathematics
Percentage of All Grade 9 TDSB Students Who Performed At or Above the Provincial Standard (Levels 3 and 4) in Applied Mathematics
* Provincial results are not available for 2015. Due to labour disruptions, a significant proportion of schools did not participate that school year.
