The OSSLT goes online on October 20th

By October 7, 2016No Comments

On October 20th, students at Columbia International College will write the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test.

“The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (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.”

As part of the EQAO Online project, October 20th marks the first time the OSSLT will be conducted online.

Lots of useful information is available via the EQAO website. We encourage students and parents to learn about the new format, and contact the CIC Academic Office with any questions they may have.

EQAO have also published a Student Handout, which outlines three advantages to taking this year’s test online.
