Math-fullChesley, ON – The latest Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) results from the 2013 – 2014 Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics show that Bluewater District School Board students are exceeding the provincial average.
The most notable gains are in Grade 9 Applied Mathematics, where 51 percent of Bluewater students met or exceeded the provincial standard. This is 4 percent higher than the provincial average of 47 percent and also signals a dramatic increase of 13 percent for Bluewater in comparison to the previous year's score.
Bluewater results continue to be strong in Grade 9 Academic Mathematics, where 86 percent of students met or exceeded the provincial standard. This is a point higher than the provincial average of 85 percent and 4 percent higher than Bluewater's score of 82 percent in 2012 – 2013.
Seventy-three percent of Bluewater students achieved at or above the provincial standard on the 2013 – 2014 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) taken by grade 10 students. The provincial average is 83 percent.
"We are thrilled with the latest increases for Bluewater in both Applied and Academic Mathematics, which really speaks to the strong commitment by our educators and administrators to provide quality instruction and learning experiences for all students in an equitable and inclusive environment. In building on the recent positive gains we have seen in Reading and Writing EQAO test scores for our primary and junior students, we are continuing to focus our efforts on intermediate literacy while recognizing that overall, our students are performing well," says Superintendent of Education Lori Wilder.
