Academics

Student progress at Mother St. Bride School is measured using a variety of assessment approaches.

Although paper-and-pencil tests continue to play an important role, the use of alternate assessments such as projects, performances, observations, portfolios, learning logs, and journals are also utilized to assess student learning.

The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) conducts a provincial review each year of Reading, Writing, and Mathematics for all grade 3 and 6 students. The purpose of this assessment is to provide information on student achievement to Parents, Schools, School Boards and the Province.
