Using the Grade 9 Applied Mathematics Assessment IIR

Looking at the Item Information Report: Student Roster Files


Grade 9 mathematics eqao files

Grade 9 Mathematics EQAO Files

  • EQAO provides a variety of files regarding the Grade 9 assessments of mathematics:

    • Detailed, internal board and school reports of aggregate achievement for diverse learner groups.

    • All students and Participating Students public reports for the board, schools, and province.

    • Individual Student Data files containing demographic and outcomes data for students.

    • Item Information Report: Student Roster files containing item-by-item data for individual students, the school, board, and province.

    • Profile of strengths and areas for improvement summaries.

Grade 9 Mathematics EQAO Files

  • EQAO provides a variety of files regarding the Grade 9 assessments of mathematics:

    • Student questionnaire results for the school and board.

    • Board-level teacher questionnaire results.

    • School and board summary of results over time.

    • Framework document explaining the assessment, the assessment process, and curriculum connections and blueprint.

    • Released assessment items and scoring guides.

    • Guides to interpreting results.

    • Provincial highlights and summaries.

    • Other resources for educators and parents.


Individual student data file isd

Individual Student Data File (ISD)

  • There are two student-level files available to schools: the ISD and the IIR.

  • The ISD is accessible via your school’s secure EQAO web site.

  • This file contains outcome, demographic and accommodations information for each individual student, including those not participating in the assessment(s).

  • This file can assist with student-level and cohort inquiry.


Item information report student roster iir

Item Information Report: Student Roster (IIR)

  • The IIR files are accessible via your school’s secure EQAO web site.

  • The IIR contains data regarding the responses provided by each student for each released item on the assessment, as well as indication of each student’s overall achievement level.

  • The summary band below the student data contains aggregate performance information for each question for the school, board, province, and students across the province who achieved Level 3 or higher overall on the assessment.

  • This file can assist with student-level and cohort inquiry, as well as comparisons between school, board and province.


Using the iir file

Using the IIR File

  • The IIR can be used to assist actual members of the cohort. There may be some application of overall trends to future assessment cohorts.

  • In the summary band, the number for each multiple choice item (MC) represents the percentage of students who got the item correct.

  • In the summary band, the number for each open response item (OR) represents the average score point achieved by all students in the respective population, expressed as a percentage.


Cautions with the iir

Cautions with the IIR

  • The IIR findings represent a starting point for looking at student data. Examination of other student data can supplement IIR data and provide greater understanding about student learning needs.

  • EQAO assessment questions are designed for a variety of student ability levels.

  • There are relatively few questions per strand and per curriculum expectation. Conclusions about student learning needs cannot be made on the basis of only a few items.

  • Clustering of questions is required.

Grade 9 Applied Mathematics:DPCDSB Winter 2008-2009

  • The following multiple choice items were most challenging for the board:

    • 18 (26%), MGV.02, PS

    • 19 (28%), MGV.02, AP

    • 1 (30%), NAV.01, PS

    • 3 (36%), NAV.02, AP

    • 5 (43%), NAV.02, KU

    • 4 (48%), NAV.01, KU

  • The following open response items were most challenging for the board:

    • 21 (mean score point of 35%, or approx. 14/40), MGV.03, AP

    • 15 (mean score point of 35%, or approx. 15/40), LRV.03, AP

Grade 9 Applied Mathematics:DPCDSB Spring 2008-2009

  • The following multiple choice items were most challenging for the board:

    • 18 (24%), MGV.02, PS

    • 11(28%), LRV.03, AP

    • 2 (40%), NAV.02, AP

    • 4 (47%), NAV.02, KU

    • 1 (48%), NAV.01, PS

  • The following open response items were most challenging for the board:

    • 5 (mean score point of 48%, or approx. 14/40), NAV.01, PS

Grade 9 Applied Mathematics:DPCDSB 2008-2009

  • Examination of all items with a score of less than 60% has suggested that areas of challenge in Dufferin-Peel in 2008-2009 were likely to be related to:

    • Mathematical processes, particularly problem solving (multi-step), reasoning and proving, connecting, and representing.

    • Novel ways of asking students to demonstrate their mathematical knowledge.
