Achievement Data

Student Achievement

Individual student achievement is summarized on a student’s report card for both curriculum expectations and learning skills.  District wide student achievement is measured in several ways, but one key measure is the data from EQAO assessments.  The Education Quality and Accountability Office testing is done annually across Ontario for students in grades 3 and 6 in reading, writing and math; grade 9 in math; and  grade 10 in literacy(OSSLT). 

The OCDSB prepares an Annual Student Achievement Report (ASAR) each fall.  The ASAR looks at EQAO data, as well a credit accumulation data, cohort analysis and more.  Read our most recent ASAR.

EQAO Results

Results from 2015-2016 provincial assessments (EQAO) show that our students performed at or above their provincial counterparts in five of six assessment areas at the primary and junior levels, in grade 9 academic and applied level mathematics, and on the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. 

OCDSB student performance improved in four of the 10 areas assessed by the EQAO (i.e. primary and junior reading, junior writing, and OSSLT – previously eligible students), compared to provincial results which saw improvements in three areas. 

Overall, our students are highly successful, with pass rates staying the same or increasing for 19 of the 22 compulsory courses for grades 9 and 10 (English, Core French, Geography, History, Math, Science, Civics and Careers). 

The 2010–2015 cohort graduation rate for OCDSB students was 87%, compared to the provincial rate of 86%.
