Exit Outcomes: The Characteristics and Skills We Want for all Learners

 At the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board our vision of student success goes beyond the classroom.  Our goal is to prepare students to be successful in life. The OCDSB Exit Outcomes identify 5 Characteristics and 5 Skills that we are trying to develop in every student.  

Characteristics
  • Collaborative
  • Globally Aware
  • Goal-oriented
  • Innovative/Creative
  • Resilient
Skills
  • Academically Diverse
  • Critical Thinkers
  • Digitally Fluent
  • Effective Communicators
  • Ethical Decision-makers

This work begins in kindergarten and we hope that by the time students graduate, they will move confidently into the world, equipped with a strong academic foundation and the learning skills they need to navigate future pathways - whether that is work, apprenticeship, college, university or community living.

OECD Study on Social and Emotional Skills

In 2019, the OCDSB joined area school boards, OCSB, CECCE and CEPEO, to participate in an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) International Survey on Social and Emotional Skills. More than 5,600 students in grades 5 and 10 participated from nearly 150 schools in the city - including 2500 from 67 OCDSB schools. Learn more about the study and results.
