Measures of Student Achievement and Success

The measures of student achievement and success are continuous and ongoing. Primary teachers formally assess the reading abilities of their students and submit the results to the board, in the fall and in the spring using PM Benchmarks and La Trousse d’evaluation en lecture de GB+. Grade 3 and 6 students participate in the provincial testing (EQAO) on an annual basis every spring, and our Junior teachers assess students using the CASI reading comprehension assessment tool in English, and the Evaluation Rapide in French.

Other measures of achievement include classroom tests, projects and assignments, observations, checklists, qualitative rubrics, self and peer evaluations. All sources of assessment and evaluation combined with progress reports, report cards and a variety of demographic factors give us a sound base from which we can better determine the direction and focus of our School Learning Planning.

School Learning Plans and Initiatives

The OCDSB has identified the importance of improving mathematics instruction and math fluency in our schools. There is also an emphasis on the importance of student well-being within the school. With this in mind, in 2018-19 our School Learning Plan is focussing on the Fundamentals of Mathematics. Our focus is on improving student knowledge and confidence in math fundamentals and math fluency through playing games. Students have had opportunities to build and strengthen computational skills in low-pressure, relaxed environments while participating in games that target specific operational skills.


School learning plans also look at increasing educator capacities, given the strong link to improved student success. Rockcliffe Park P.S. has a deeply dedicated team of teacher professionals, who have participated in Professional Learning in various ways throughout the year. School-wide professional development has taken place by looking at the integration of math fundamentals into the FSL classroom, and through teachers observing mathematics instruction in their colleagues’ classrooms. Teachers are continually sharing best practices in student learning and instruction.


Our School Learning Plan would not be complete without mentioning the importance of School Culture. Here at RPPS, we believe that an in-school emphasis on character building, health, and active participation both in and out of the classroom will help support our students’ achievement in all areas.


Here is a sample of what teachers have been working on with regard to improved student achievement this school year:
