Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT)


In October and November many of the Grade 10 and 11 students participated in the writing of the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). Individual student results have now been distributed to those who participated in the fall OSSLT writing opportunity.

All students must meet the secondary school literacy graduation requirement to earn their high school diploma. For most students, this means passing the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). Students who do not successfully complete the OSSLT have other opportunities to meet the literacy graduation requirement.

There will be a second OSSLT writing opportunity for Grade 10 and 11 students happening this spring. Students who have not yet written the assessment, and students who were not yet successful will be included in this cohort of writers.  Preparation and feedback sessions are scheduled to support the students who will be writing the test.  With this preparation, our goal is for each student to feel confident and find success.


The OSSLT assessment dates for the spring are as follows:


Tuesday, April 12 - OSSLT Session 1 Writing Opportunity

Tuesday, May 10 – OSSLT Session 2 Writing Opportunity


We believe that students, working with their teachers, parents/guardians and administrators, can be successful on the OSSLT. Additional information and materials about the OSSLT are posted on the EQAO web site at If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to the school.
