On September 6, 2017, the Premier and Minister of Education announced an Independent Review of Assessment and Reporting to update Ontario’s assessment and reporting practices to make sure they are culturally relevant, able to measure a wider range of learning, and better reflect student well-being and equity. The scope of this review includes public engagement concerning:
- Classroom assessments
- Large-scale provincial assessments, including EQAO
- Ontario’s participation in pan-Canadian and international assessment programs.
This Independent Review of Assessment and Reporting is being conducted by the Premier and the Minister’s Education Advisors. The goal is to engage as many people as possible in a province-wide conversation about current approaches to assessment and reporting in Ontario. The expectation is that this provincial conversation, by listening to many diverse experiences and perspectives, will reveal the hopes for and concerns about assessment, and propose suggestions about future possibilities for assessment. The Review will also examine relevant research evidence and gather technical expertise on measurement and assessments practices in Ontario, across Canada and internationally.
