Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics

Provincial Testing in High School

In high school, your child is required by the provincial government to complete two province-wide tests that are overseen by the Education Quality and Accountability Office

  • The Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics

  • The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT)

These tests are administered so that your child can demonstrate skills and knowledge of reading, writing and math. These assessments give parents and teachers valuable information about strengths and areas for improvement.

Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics

The Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics provides individual and Board data on students’ knowledge and skills based on the mathematics expectations outlined in the Ontario Curriculum. All high school students are required to participate in this assessment,but unlike the OSSLT, passing the assessment is not a requirement for high school graduation.
