Achievement Data

Student Achievement

Individual student achievement is summarized on a student’s report card for both curriculum expectations and learning skills.  District-wide student achievement is measured in several ways, but one key measure is the data from EQAO assessments.  The Education Quality and Accountability Office testing is done annually across Ontario for students in grades 3 and 6 in reading, writing and math; grade 9 in math; and grade 10 in literacy(OSSLT). 

The OCDSB prepares an Annual Student Achievement Report (ASAR) each fall.  The ASAR looks at EQAO data, as well a credit accumulation data, cohort analysis and more.  Read our most recent ASAR.

EQAO Results

Results from 2016-2017 provincial assessments (EQAO) show that our students outperformed their provincial counterparts in all three assessment areas at the junior levels, in grade 9 academic mathematics, and on the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. 

OCDSB student performance improved in primary and junior reading. Our commitment to meeting the unique needs of our special education students (excluding gifted) and students living in lower income neighbourhoods is evidenced by the narrowing of the achievement gap between these students and all students in most assessment areas measured by the EQAO.

Overall, our students are highly successful, with pass rates staying the same or increasing in18 of the 22 compulsory courses for grades 9 and 10 (English, Core French, Geography, History, Math, Science, Civics, and Careers). For students pursuing French language courses through Grade 12, the Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF) provides students with an opportunity to earn a certificate that reflects their proficiency in the language across four competencies. In 2016-2017, 83% of students who were enrolled in a grade 12 French language course completed the DELF, with 93% being successful.  

The 2011-2016 cohort graduation rate for both the OCDSB and the province was 87%.
