Information regarding the early writing of the online Literacy Test (OSSLT)

All eligible students at Rick Hansen will be writing the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) online earlier in the school year on Oct. 20, 2016. The test will be facilitated in a classroom using technology provided by the school.

The OSSLT measures whether or not 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 (OSSD).

There is no disadvantage to taking the test early. If successful, the pass will count towards their OSSD. If unsuccessful, students can complete the test again on March 30, 2017, as first-time eligible students.

There will be a letter home to parents in the upcoming weeks outlining the schedule for the day.  Any students who are not writing the OSSLT On October 20 will not attend school.

All students can also practice for the literacy test online at www.eqao.com.
