EQAO Parent Resources

The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) is an independent provincial agency funded by the Government of Ontario. EQAO’s mandate is to conduct province-wide tests at key points in every student’s education and report the results to educators, parents and the public. EQAO measures students achievement in reading, writing and mathematics in relation to Ontario Curriculum expectations.

EQAO assesses students throughout their school career:

  • Grade 3 assessment of reading, writing and mathematics
  • Grade 6 assessment of reading, writing and mathematics
  • Grade 9 assessment of mathematics (all students working toward a credit in Grade 9 Academic or Applied Mathematics are required to participate)
  • Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) – successful completion of the test is one of the requirements students must meet to earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma

Please visit our EQAO information page to learn more about the EQAO tests and find the test results from recent years.
