Earlier this fall, the Premier and Minister of Education announced a review of Ontario’s student assessment practices. Led by the Minister’s Education Advisors, the independent review aims to ensure that Ontario’s student assessments are culturally relevant, able to measure a wider range of learning, and better reflect student well-being and equity.


Over the next several weeks, the Advisors will be holding public engagement sessions across the province to seek input on how to improve student assessment.


All members of the community are welcome to attend a public engagement session, at the below times:

·         6:00 – 6:30 p.m. – Open House

·         6:30 – 8:30 p.m. – Roundtable Meeting


Meeting locations, dates and links to register for the public session are below. Child minding will also be provided.

·         Ottawa, November 22 – Register Here

·         Ottawa French Session, November 22 – Register Here

 

Note: Advance registration is not required, but does help us with planning and preparations. During registration, there will be an opportunity to advise of any accommodation needs that will support your ability to fully participate in the engagement session in your region.


The input gathered directly from parents/caregivers, students, teachers/educators, officials, business leaders and the broader community will be used to help develop recommendations for improving Ontario’s assessment practices.
