Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test
Our Grade 10 students will be writing the 2017 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) this Thursday, March 30th. Students originally had an opportunity to write the test in October, however, technical difficulties prevented the majority of students in Ontario from completing the assessment. We have used this additional time to review concepts, outline test structure and highlight previous tests for student support.
