Assessment – Measuring Student Progress

Classroom Assessment

Teachers use a wide range of assessment methods, applied in a variety of situations, in order to gather reliable information about student learning. For more information, please visit Classroom Assessments.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parents and teachers form an important partnership to encourage a child’s success. Key to this success is open communication. Open communication is supported through parent/teacher conferences. For more information, please visit Parent, Student, Teacher Conferences.

Report Cards

In the fall of the school year, your child(ren) receive an Elementary Progress Report Card, which is used in all elementary schools in Ontario.  The Elementary Progress Report Card provides students, teachers and parents/guardians with an opportunity to reflect upon progress to date and discuss plans to promote future success.

Two times per year (in January-February and in June) your child(ren) will receive an Elementary Provincial Report Card, which is also used in all elementary schools in Ontario.

For more information on the Elementary Progress Report Card or the Elementary Provincial Report Card, please visit Making Sense of the Provincial Report Card Grades 1-8.

Provincial Testing

The Ontario Ministry of Education has mandated a program of provincial testing. Students across the province participate in testing in grades 3, 6, 9 and 10.

The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) designs the tests, scores student responses, and reports the results to the public.

This section of our website provides information about the tests, links to resources that will support your child(ren) in writing the tests, and shows test results from our schools. For more information about provincial grade 3 & 6 testing, please visit Provincial Testing  – Grade 3 and 6.
