The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) is an independent provincial agency which conducts tests at key points in every student’s primary, junior and secondary education, and reports the results to educators, parents and the public.
EQAO assessments measures student achievement in reading, writing and mathematics against Ontario Curriculum expectations. The assessments yield individual student, school, board and provincial results.
In total EQAO conducts four province-wide assessments for both English- and French-speaking students:

- Grade 6 Assessment of Reading, Writing and Math
- Grade 9 Assessment of Math
