Toronto test scores improving

A report on how Toronto’s high school students are doing is in, and by the looks of it, teenagers’ grades are on the way up.

According to the Fraser Institute’s annual report card on Ontario’s secondary schools, high schoolers are performing better on standardized testing than they have been, with 26.9 percent scoring below average, a marked improvement from the 30 percent underperforming in the 2005-2006 school year.

Michael Thomas, associate director for the Fraser Institute, projected confidence for the future of Ontario’s students.

“This is a promising trend for Ontario schools,” said Thomas. “But with more than a quarter of exams still falling below the provincial standard, there is room for academic improvement across the province.”

The study looked at test scores from all the provinces, and at the head of the class was British Columbia, with just 8.1 percent scoring below the provincial standard.

Storage units likely don’t readily come to mind when it comes to school performance, but they can serve as an ideal place to house important tests and papers both for students and their teachers.
