A position paper of the Ontario Teachers’ Federation

Ontario is recognized as a renowned, global leader in education. Our teachers, educators and stakeholders share a commitment to continually improve the education system. Our collective understanding of assessment and evaluation has evolved since the publication of A New Vision for Large-Scale Testing in Ontario (2011). OTF and its Affiliates continue to believe in evidence-based research tempered and informed by the experience of classroom teachers. OTF believes it is time to set a new course for assessment in Ontario’s public education system.
