Key Highlights of TDSB EQAO Assessment Performance in 2018-19

TDSB Results in the Primary Division (Grade 3) and Junior Division (Grade 6) Compared to the Province

  • Compared to the province, the TDSB has a higher proportion of students performing at or above the provincial standard (Levels 3 and 4) in five of the six EQAO assessments in Grades 3 and 6. This is especially the case in Grade 6 Mathematics with the TDSB performing five percentage points higher than the province (53% compared to 48%).
  • Over the past five years, the TDSB has consistently had higher proportions of students performing at Level 4, the highest level of EQAO, in all six Grade 3 and 6 EQAO assessments compared to the province.

Shifts in Enrolment in Academic and Applied Program of Study Coincide with an Increase in Post-Secondary Opportunity for TDSB students

  • A recent TDSB study compared high school students that graduated in 2011 with those that graduated in 2016 and showed a steady increase in academic success for students at the end of Grade 9 as well as a significant increase in TDSB students’ post-secondary education opportunities. This is especially the case for students that are coming from the most challenging circumstances.
  • From 2014-15 to 2018-19, the percentage of students taking Applied Mathematics has decreased seven percentage points, from 26% (4,446 students) to 19% (3,062 students).
  • Over the same period of time, the percentage of first-time eligible Grade 10 students taking Applied English courses has decreased four percentage points from 14% (2,214 students) to 10% (1,482 students), while the percentage of students taking Academic English courses has increased by seven percentage points from 77% (12,630 students) to 84% (12,950 students).
  • The proportion of first-time eligible students taking the Academic English course in Grade 10 is 10 percentage points higher than the province (84% compared to 74%).
  • Decreased numbers of students taking the Applied Mathematics assessment and Applied English course at Grade 10 coincides with a steady decrease in students taking the overall Applied Program of Study (students taking three or more courses in the Applied Program).
  • These trends provide increased opportunities for students to access post-secondary education opportunities.
