Did you know that EQAO is NOT just a grade 3 and 6 test? Sure, students write them in grades 3 and 6, but they are actually called Primary Assessments and Junior Assessments.
The learning that students need to be successful on these tests accumulate in each grade. For example, kids learning about geometric attributes in grade 1 will need this learning as concepts build in grade 2 and then in grade 3.
So…are you smarter than a 3rd or 6th grader?
