LITERACY TEST: March 27, 2014
The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is a provincial test of literacy skills (reading and writing) acquired across all subject areas by the end of grade 9 (www.eqao.com). Eligible students will write the OSSLT on March 27, 2014. These students have attended an information session (Feb 21) and had two practice sessions in their afternoon classes prior to the March Break. During these sessions, students reviewed test components, learned tips and strategies, and completed practice exercises. Students are encouraged to review additional practice materials on the EQAO website. Since the OSSLT is a high school graduation requirement, all eligible students must ensure they are present and on-time the morning of Thursday March 27th. It is recommended that test-writers have a solid breakfast and are well-rested. Please ensure that students do not have any appointments scheduled during this time as there is no make-up option. If absent, students will be deemed “unsuccessful” on this year’s test. All unsuccessful students will have an opportunity to write the test the following year or take the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OLC4O) at Summer or Night School. Please contact Ashley Sleeth, Vice-Principal, or Christine Rankin, Head of English and Languages, should you have any questions or concerns about the OSSLT. (02/21/2014)
