Thank you to all our students who participated in the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT). Lakeview students placed exceptionally well- Congratulations!
The results of the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test administered to your child in May of this year, have been received and processed. The purpose of the CCAT test is to help classroom teachers and parents, in conjunction with daily work assignments to identify your child’s strengths and needs. This information will also assist classroom teachers in developing and supporting appropriate classroom programs for student learning and achievement for the new school year.
In addition, the test results help to establish initial screenings for students who may have academic needs which may require specific follow-up, such as Giftedness which falls within the high 98-100 range. Students were assessed in 4 areas – Verbal, Quantitative, Inductive reasoning skills, and the students overall ability to learn and grasp concepts.
The overall results for Lakeview are excellent with the majority of students falling into the ‘above average’ grouping; 25% into the ‘high average’; 7% into the ’superior’ category (90 – 97) and 1% into the ‘very superior’ or gifted range (98+). Excitingly, there are 25% of students who were identified as ‘gifted’ in some of the 4 areas listed above and five students who were identified as gifted across all four areas. This is an amazing accomplishment.
Lakeview is an applicant school in two major accreditations – Canadian Accredited Independent Schools, which is the most respected accrediting body for Canadian private schools; and the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators, which governs Montessori schools across Canada; and we are also a member of the Ontario Federation of Independent Schools. The bar will truly be raised even further as we work through the accreditation process. Information regarding the age and grade percentiles are available for each student. If you require further information as to your child’s results, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or myself.
Congratulations to all,
Prof. Maureen Harris
