Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents,
Please remember that Friday, May 27 marks the beginning of our grade six EQAO testing period. Testing will continue until Friday, June 3rd. On these six test days, please send your child to school well-rested and having had a healthy and plentiful breakfast. You do not need to supply your child with pencils, erasers, protractors or calculators; we will provide these items. In six one-hour sessions, students will complete a variety of assessment activities designed to allow them to demonstrate their skills and knowledge relating to reading, writing, and mathematics as described in The Ontario Curriculum. The assessment is administered province-wide and is developed by Ontario teachers and assessment experts to reflect curriculum expectations.
EQAO has developed a “Parent’s Guide to EQAO Tests” and “Questions and Answers for Parents” (available in 20 languages) to give you more information about the assessments and an understanding of what to expect. To access these resources, go to the EQAO Web site (www.eqao.com) click “Parent Resources” and then select “Junior Division (Grades 4-6)."
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to e-mail either Tr. Salma or Tr. Rania.
