QC creates working group as cégep students fail French test

September 14, 2021
The Government of Quebec has announced the creation of a working group that will focus on improving cégep students’ results on the French exam. The test is required for students to obtain a diploma, and the Journal de Montréal reports that 27.1% of cégep students fail the spelling and grammar section of the test. Some people, including Fédération des cégeps President Bernard Tremblay, have debated the use of correction software in class and evaluations, while others are questioning the relevance of the French test.
