Grade 3 & 6 EQAO Results Split by Gender

In 2009-2010, in both divisions, the greatest gender gap is found in writing (15% fewer primary boys, and 19% fewer junior boys, obtain level 3 and 4 in this area). This gap has, however, narrowed slightly over time (i.e., the gap was 18% and 21%, respectively, in 2005-2006). There is a marginal gender difference in mathematics in both divisions.
