SCDSB Shows Improvement in Grade 3 and 6 EQAO Test Results

December 17, 2002 - Results from the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) indicate Grade 3 & 6 students from the Sudbury Catholic District School Board scored well in recent testing. The test, conducted in May 2002, consisted of a reading, writing and math component. The test is given annually and is intended to indicate whether or not students meet the basic standards set by the province. Sudbury Catholic District School Board Grade 3 students who wrote the provincial assessment surpassed the provincial average in reading and made great gains in writing and mathematics. Grade 6 students met the provincial average in writing, increased their scores in reading and maintained their scores in mathematics. "We will continue to provide instructional strategies to improve student achievement in the area of mathematics," stated Rossella Bagatto, Superintendent of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. Our elementary principals have met with the curriculum team to develop individual school plans to ensure even greater success in the May 2003, EQAO assessment," maintains Bagatto.

Ray Vincent, the new Chair of the Sudbury Catholic Board is also very pleased with the efforts of the students. "The recent EQAO results indicate outstanding improvement and a growth of 21% by grade 3 in mathematics over the past two years. These significant gains are the result of consistent efforts of our students, the commitment of our teachers and principals and the support of our parents," stated Vincent.
