Upcoming Literacy Test
To all parents of Grade 10 students, and previously unsuccessful Grade 11 and 12 students, the Ontario Secondary Schools Literacy Test (OSSLT) will be taking place this year on March 31, 2016. It is imperative that your child is present for this test, and if they will not be able to be present, that you inform your child’s respective Vice Principal as soon as possible.
Many online resources are available for parents and students to access to help prepare for the OSSLT. The following websites may be particularly beneficial:
www.eqao.com – The website for EQAO, the creators of the test, which offers access to previous tests, as well as practice questions, and preparation tools.
www.readwriterock.com – A fun, interactive, and free website from the Hamilton-Wentworth district school board that allows students to complete a variety of activities in preparation for the test.
