Reading, Writing, and Mathematics for Primary (Grade 3) and Junior (Grade 6) Divisions

Reading, Writing and Mathematics for Primary (Grade 3) and Junior (Grade 6) Divisions

Background

The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) Assessments of Reading, Writing, and Mathematics were administered to all students in Grades 3 and 6 throughout May and June 2022. The assessments measure how well students have met the provincial expectations in The Ontario Curriculum by the end of the grade being assessed. These assessments contain questions that require written responses as well as multiple-choice questions.

Overall student performance is reported using a four-level scale that is consistent with the four levels in The Ontario Curriculum and is aligned with levels on the Ontario Student Report Card.

The following results are reported for fully participating students achieving Levels 3 and 4 (the provincial standard) on the Grade 3 and 6 assessments.
