Important Assessment Dates Coming Up!





April 30 – May 4th, 2018

The CAT-4 test 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.



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 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 assessment on May 22nd – May 25th, and the Grade 6’s on May 28th – May 31st, 2018.


Please mark your calendars today, and avoid booking appointments on these dates.


Have a great week Tigers!
