ASSESSMENT & TESTING
In addition to the ongoing assessment that takes place within classrooms throughout the school year, there are some grade-specific assessments administered throughout the school board and or province.  For example, within the TCDSB, the Grade 2, 5 and 7 students undergo a test called the Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT) and Grade 4 students complete the Otis-Lennon School Abilities Test (OLSAT).  In addition, the Ontario Ministry of Education requires students in grades 3 and 6 to participate in an assessment process that is known as EQAO (see below for more details). The results of any of these assessments can be used for a variety of purposes such as programming, grouping and planning as well as to flag students who may be possible candidates for the Gifted Program or for intensive support programs.
