Grade 8 math scores climb across Canada except Ontario, report finds

A new report has found Grade 8 students' math scores improved in all provinces except Ontario between 2010 and 2016.

The Council of Ministers of Education, Canada released its Pan-Canadian Assessment Program report today, which looked at the results of tests administered by the program.

The report found that during the six-year period, Ontario students' performance in math remained the same middling.

That's contrasted with Quebec, where the report found average scores the highest in the country climbed significantly.

As a whole, the report says, mathematics scores in Canada climbed slightly.

The report also looked at students' scores in reading and science, both of which improved across Canada on average.
