Target: The target for the Grade 7 Assessment in Numeracy is at or above 75 per cent by 2024
The Grade 7 Assessment in Number Sense and Number Skills is trending very slightly upward as we continue to move towards the target.
The Grade 7 Assessment in Numeracy indicates the percentage of students meeting expectations in at least four of the five sub-competencies in the Grade 7 Assessment in Number Sense and Number Skills (i.e., ordering fractions, ordering decimals, representing numbers, patterns, and mental math). The measure indicates students’ algebraic reasoning skills and number sense.
2017/18: 49.3 percent
2018/19: 50.4 percent
Numeracy skills are essential foundations towards better educational outcomes, economic well-being, and social inclusion. Monitoring this indicator is essential to ensure that government’s educational programs for children are working effectively in improving their foundational skills.
Established in January 2019, the independent K-12 Education Commission will provide recommendations to improve the K-12 education system in Manitoba. The commission’s report is expected to be released publicly in March 2020.
