Large Scale Assessments- Please save the Dates!

The staff and students of St. Teresa School continue to do their best toward celebrating and demonstrating student learning.  Below are the three tests that will take place this spring:

 

GRADE 4’s – CANADIAN COGNITIVE ACHIEVEMENT TEST (CCAT)- APRIL 8 – 15, 2019

 

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board is administering the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT) to Grade 4 students throughout the system. This test is a valuable tool for educators and parents and assists us toward further identifying your child’s learning strengths and needs. The test will be spread over 3 days (three subtests ranging from 30 – 60 minutes each) and is composed of a verbal, non-verbal and quantitative battery. This assessment will take place over a 3 day period. The purpose of the CCAT is to:
  1.  Identify your child’s areas of strength and areas of need,
  2.  Provide information about your child’s learning style(s),
  3. Provide direction to your child’s teacher on instructional methods, learning materials and the pace of instruction.
GRADE 7—CAT-4 (CANADIAN ACHIEVEMENT TEST) – APRIL 23- 30th, 2019

 

CAT-4 is a standardized test which measures achievement in the basic skills generally taught in schools across Canada. CAT is a set of tests on reading, mathematics, language, writing and spelling. The results of students tested with CAT are compared with those obtained from large, representative samples of students from across Canada. Their results can also be compared to curriculum expectations. CAT is the only Canadian owned and Canadian designed national test. In addition to its use by schools, part of CAT has been chosen by statistics Canada as the basis for tracking achievement over time.

 

 EQAO TESTING – GRADES 3 & 6 MAY 21 – JUNE 3, 2019

 

This year’s cohorts of Grade 3 and Grade 6 students will participate in the Primary and Junior EQAO testing. The testing is spread over 3 school days and consists of 2 one-hour blocks each day for a total of 6 hours. The testing is based on the regular grade level curriculum expectations for reading, writing and mathematics. This is a great opportunity for students to demonstrate their learning based on their respective grade level curriculum expectations.  The Grade 3’s will write the test May 21 – May 23rd and the Grade 6’s will write the test May 27– May 29th. 

 

Please mark your calendars and avoid booking appointments on these dates to avoid interruptions during these testing dates.  Please contact the school if you have any questions.
