SCDSB Students Score Above Average In Provincial Literacy Tests

May 5, 2003 - Ontario School Literacy Test results released by the Education Quality Assessment Office (EQAO) for Secondary Schools indicate that students at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board continue to perform above the provincial average. For the first time, results have been released by level of study, (Academic, Applied and Locally Developed). With respect to the students taking courses at the Academic level, only 3% were unsuccessful in passing both the reading and writing components. The Board welcomes the recent announcement by the Ministry of Education in introducing the new Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course to the curriculum. This credit course will be particularly appropriate for students that have difficulty expressing their literacy skills on a test. The course will combine remediation in reading and writing with an alternative assessment method to meet studentsí needs.
