OSSLT

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT): 2021-2022

The OSSLT measures whether students are meeting the minimum standard for literacy across all subjects up to the end of Grade 9. Successful completion of the literacy test is one of the requirements to earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma. All students across the province write this test.

As the literacy graduation requirement for all students graduating during the 2021–2022 school year has been waived, graduating students (i.e., Grade 12s) do not need to take the OSSLT or take OLC4O1: Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC). 

St. Mary Grade 10 students will be writing the OSSLT in Spring 2022.

St. Mary Grade 11 students will be writing the OSSLT on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 per the schedule below.
*
Grade 9, 10 and 12 students will be following a regular school day.

Practice Test

Students have the opportunity to become familiar with the online test and its platform through EQAO’s online practice test. The online practice test comprises two sessions, which include content from previous tests. The practice test is equivalent to the two sessions students will be completing during the live test. In addition, the practice test includes an introductory session that allows students to become familiar with the new online platform’s tools and functions
