Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT)

Successful completion of the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is a graduation requirement for all high school students in Ontario.  The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) measures whether students are meeting the minimum standard for literacy across all subjects. The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) is employing a computer-based online OSSLT to eligible students across the province. The assessment must be completed in person at the student’s school on a school board owned device.

OSSLT for the 2022/2023 school year is now complete. For further inquiries please contact Christina Williams, Literacy Lead at williamsch@hdsb.ca or Andrea Dailey, Vice-Principal at daileya@hdsb.ca.
