Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Research, Review and Evaluation of Students and Programs

Early Development Instrument
Kindergarten teachers complete the EDI to better understand a child’s readiness to learn at school, and to support communities and families in their efforts to prepare young children for school. 

Canadian Achievement Test (CAT4)
Each year, students from Grades 4-8 write the Canadian Achievement Test 4 to provide a valuable snapshot of students’ basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. At the school, this data is used to support the strengths and needs of each student. At home, parents receive a report which can be used as a guide to support children at home.

Resiliency Initiatives Canada 
Students in Grades 4-8 complete resiliency survey developed by Resiliency Initiatives. The resiliency factors represent fundamental elements found to be essential for all youth to cope effectively with life challenges and to become productive and responsible adults in society.

Parents, Students and Staff Surveys 
MSIC parents, students and staff participate in surveys which capture data about the schooling experience from the various stakeholder groups. Surveys are anonymous and provide valuable information that can inform the School Improvement Plan. 

Interim Report 
The Interim Report includes information on student demographic background, kindergarten students’ readiness for school, results from the EDI, student engagement, attitudes and skills, literacy scores (DRA/CASI), EQAO scores, CAT4 results, report card results, student/parent/ staff perception surveys and/or TDSB student/parent census data.
