GRADE 7 Students – CAT-4 (CANADIAN ACHIEVEMENT TEST, 4th Edition)

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.

 

EQAO TESTING 2018– GRADES 3 & 6

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.

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board is administering the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT-Version 7) to Grade 4 Students throughout the system.

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. 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.

Jersey Day this Thursday for Humboldt!

Message from Director of Education, Loretta Notten…

As many of you are already aware, Canadians from coast, to coast to coast will join together on Thursday, April 12th for a special “Jersey Day” to honour the victims of last Friday’s tragedy involving the Humboldt Saskatchewan Broncos hockey team.

We have flown our flags at half-mast yesterday and today as a sign of solidarity with the victims and their families. We now invite all students and staff to offer a further sign of support by wearing a sports jersey to school (or to your board admin facility) on Thursday. We further encourage you to share your photos on social media so that all affected by the tragedy will know the entire WCDSB community is thinking of them, and praying for them. You may wish to include the hashtags #humboldtstrong and #humboldtbroncos.
