Standardized testing for elementary students starts Tuesday

Students in grade 3 and grade 6 will be tested on several subjects.

The Ontario Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) standardized testing starts on Tuesday and continues until June 3. 

Students in grade 3 and grade 6 will be tested in math and on their writing and reading skills. 

Last year, there were over 260,000 students tested across the province. 

The results in 2017-2018 revealed that 61 per cent of grade 3 students and 49 per cent of grade 6 students were performing at or above the provincial standard. 

The EQAO is an independent agency that conducts large-scale assessments to measure Ontario students' achievements in reading, writing and math.
