An appropriate/useful assessment app would be expensive to develop for a single Provincial market (tied to Curriculum) otherwise it would have been done already.

Scotland has done it with less than half the population and a much smaller economy than Ontario.

Who built it?

They have a Scottish government agency developing and running the tests, The SNSA. I assume they did.

Likely wouldn’t happen without significant investment by Gov’t. Wonder how that would be received locally

A total waste of money - why not take a serious look at how we can properly fund our schools and combat the incredible inequality that exists in Ontario and the rest of the country. We should expand the conversation here beyond

Efforts need to be made to make it an election issue.

really? I haven't heard anything that looks like a public debate. I wish that excellent education was truly an education issue. I would take it well beyond

Ditto. Looking for a party plank - "If elected, we will save the taxpayers of the province $$$$ by the elimination of this troublesome program."

The very first thing MUST do is stop making test results by school and boards public. How does this improve education?

It's not about improving education per se, but it's about showing the general public what they are getting for their tax dollars. That's the purpose of EQAO. Always has been.

Pretty sure that's the policy of GPO and has been for years. NDP was committed to a review of EQAO and OLP is doing that now.

Yes, but the OLP assessment is not going far enough IMO

That would call for courage and intelligence. I would love to see a politician who truly believes in building an excellent school system in Ontario.
