Decolonizing Educational Assessment Ontario Elementary Students and the EQAO

Decolonizing Educational Assessment Ontario Elementary Students and the EQAO

Author: Ardavan Eizadirad Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/11/2019

This book examines the history of standardized testing in Ontario leading to the current context and its impact on racialized identities, particularly on Grade 3 students, parents, and educators. Using a theoretical argument supplemented with statistical trends, the author illuminates how EQAO tests are culturally and racially biased and promote a Eurocentric curriculum and way of life privileging white students and those from higher socio-economic status. This book spurs readers to further question the use of EQAO standardized testing and challenges us to consider alternative models which serve the needs of all students.
