Renfrew County Catholic School Board students show the province … – Pembroke Observer

Renfrew County Catholic District School Board (RCCDSB) students met or exceeded provincial standards in the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) assessment in the 2021-22 school year.

The RCCDSB received its results in November and according to a board press release, they were proud of the results but still noted there had been some learning loss because of the global COVID pandemic.

“Overall, we are very pleased with the results from the 2021-22 EQAO assessment,” the board said in a press release. “We know this would not be possible without the incredible hard work of our students and teaching staff. As an inclusive Catholic community called to love unconditionally and educate the hearts and minds in the way of Christ, these results provide us with a sense of gratitude for our entire school community.”

In Grade 3 reading, 84 per cent of RCCDSB students met or exceeded the provincial standard. Across the province, 73 per cent of students met the standard. Seventy-eight per cent of RCCDSB met or exceeded the provincial standard in Grade 3 writing while provincially, the percentage was 65. In Grade 3 mathematics, 73 per cent of RCCDSB students met the standard while provincially, 59 per cent of students met the standard.

In Grade 6 reading, 88 per cent of RCCDSB students met or exceeded the provincial standard. Provincially, 85 per cent of students met the standard. Ninety per cent of RCCDSB met or exceeded the provincial standard in Grade 6 writing while provincially the percentage of students meeting the standard was 84. In Grade 6 mathematics, 54 per cent of RCCDSB students met the standard while provincially, 47 per cent of students met the standard.

In Grade 9 mathematics, 65 per cent of RCCDSB students met the standard while across the province, 52 per cent of students met the standard. In the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) for first time eligible students, 85 per cent of RCCDSB students met or exceeded the standard while provincially that percentage was 82. Eighty-five per cent of RCCDSB students met or exceeded the standard in the OSSLT for previously eligible students. Across the province, the same percentage of students met or exceeded the standard in that test.

“As a board we are extremely proud of how our RCCDSB students performed as individuals and in relation to the province as a whole. We still have work to do and this new large-scale data provides some direction for next steps,” the board said in its press release.

According to the Catholic board, its Grade 3, 6, 9 and 10 students had the opportunity to participate in new large-scale digital EQAO assessments during the 2021 – 22 school year. The new digital provincial assessment is designed to assess and provide a snapshot of students’ knowledge and understanding of the Ontario curriculum in reading, writing and math.

The board said that large-scale assessments such as EQAO differ from robust classroom assessment and evaluation in their purpose, design and how they are scored.

“Rich classroom assessment and evaluation practices are developed by our exceptional teachers to help their individual students take the next steps in learning and inform students and parents of the student’s achievement level. It is clear when we look at our classroom assessment and evaluation data that our students within RCCDSB experienced some learning loss over the course of this global pandemic. However, these EQAO results should make all students and staff at the RCCDSB proud of the work they have accomplished. These results would not have been possible without the dedication of our teaching staff and the hard work of our students.,” the board’s press release stated.
