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
  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
