Literacy Test (OSSLT) Preparation

OSSLT Preparation

Please use the links provided to test your skills and better prepare yourself for the OSSLT.  All students are encouraged to practice anything provided at the EQAO website (located below). 
During the weeks leading up to the test, Gr. 10 classes will receive a "Literacy Test Blitz".  This "Blitz" consists of numerous different examples of questions that will be completed and taken up with their classroom teachers.  Literacy Test student coaches may also assist with preparation.

This year, the test will take place on the morning of Wednesday, March 27th.

All Ontario Secondary Schools participate in the OSSLT, and all the tests for these schools are marked by EQAO.  Due to this process, test results for each year are not released until June.  Student's test results should appear on their student portal.  In addition, students will receive direct notification through the mail from EQAO.  Before school is finished in June, you should know your OSSLT results for 2019.  For those tho are unable to access their portal or have not received any information, please contact the office.
