About the test:

The test is written in two sessions with a 15 min break between booklets.

Bring a pencil and eraser or blue/black pen.

You will be assigned a room to write in, that information will be given to you on the Monday before the test and will be posted in the front foyer the morning of the test.

Please do not bring anything else to the test room.  You are not allowed to have any electronic devices (i.e., cell phones) in the test room.

The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT), administered by Ontario’s Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO), is used to determine whether a student has the literacy (reading and writing) skills required to meet the standard for understanding reading selections and communicating in a variety of writing forms expected by The Ontario Curriculum across all subjects up to the end of Grade 9. The successful completion of this test or the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course is a requirement for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

The OSSLT is written on the same day in every school across the province.  Please ensure that you avoid scheduling appointments during that time as we are not able to have students complete the test during a different time/date.
