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