The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is a mandatory standardized test for secondary school students in Ontario. The test measures whether or not students are meeting the minimum standard for literacy across all subjects. Students must pass this in order to obtain an Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
When is the OSSLT?
Thursday, March 30, 2017.
Where do I write the OSSLT?
All students who are required to write the test are assigned a room (the same room you wrote the Mock OSSLT on Thursday February 23). Please ask your homeroom teacher if you are unsure.
What will be on the test?
The literacy test assesses reading, writing, and conventions of language. Questions will be formatted in multiple choice, short writing, open-response short answer, long writing, and a news report. Practice using samples from previous years! These can be found on the EQAO website, and also @ your library!
