KCDSB Reviews EQAO Test Results

By Tim Davidson Nov 24, 2022 | 8:44 AM

Despite a three year lay-off because of COVID-19, standardized test results in the Kenora Catholic District School Board are pretty much unchanged.

Students wrote the grade 3 and grade 6 reading, writing and math tests this past spring, along with the grade 9 math tests and the grade 10 literacy tests.

Superintendent of Education Jamey Robertson says they did have mixed results in the elementary math tests.

“There was a two percent improvement at the grade three level and a one percent decrease in grade six mathematics from our results from two years ago,” Robertson explained to the KCDSB trustees recently.

“What we’ll do is take some time to evaluate the data fully.  We look at the student questionnaires that come with it (EQAO) and we’re able to cross-reference that with the results we have and we have a new baseline moving forward.”

Robertson says they did see a slight improvement in grade 3 and grade six reading and writing results.

In terms of the Grade 9 math tests, Robertson says they have a new baseline, since the test has changed.
