CMEC (Council of Ministers of Education, Canada) has just published a new Assessment Matters! research note on parental engagement in children’s early literacy and numeracy development, and how these relate to students’ achievement at the Grade 4 level.


Assessment Matters! is a new series of policy-oriented research notes designed to explore educational issues in Canada and Canadian jurisdictions. The notes are based on the results of international and national assessment programs, including the Pan-Canadian Assessment Program (PCAP), the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
