Elementary and Secondary Program Pathways and Achievement Outcomes

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) annually produces student achievement reports that include data from provincial EQAO assessments and local sources (e.g., report card marks, credit accumulation, graduation rate) to help identify where there are achievement gaps for specific groups of students (i.e., females/males, English language learners, students with special education needs, students who have self-identified as Indigenous (INDG), and students residing in lower-income neighbourhoods (Low-SES), and whether or not these gaps are narrowing over time. At the secondary level, this has included the analysis of outcomes in grades 9 and 10 compulsory courses in academic, applied, and locally developed pathways.


2019-2020 Reporting


This is the first year that this data analysis includes the identity data collected in 2019-2020 through the Valuing Voices – Identity Matters! Student Survey. Reporting this data in alignment with the requirements under the Anti-Racism Act and accompanying Data Standards allows for a deeper analysis of additional groups of students based on self-identified Indigenous identity, race, gender identity, and disability, and supports the OCDSB’s strategic priorities to identify and eliminate disproportionate representation in programs and differences in achievement outcomes between groups of students (disparity).
