The results of these EQAO tests are reported publicly – at the school, school board and provincial levels. In Ontario, more than students from English-language and French-language schools participated in the assessment.

Data Sources PISA included a two-hour assessment of mathematics, reading and science skills. Students completed a minute questionnaire that provided background information on factors contributing to student achievement.
