Literacy Test

Each year the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) conducts the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT).  This provincial test measures the performance of Grade 10 students on the reading and writing expectations in all subjects up to and including grade 9.  Successful completion of the OSSLT is a graduation requirement.

Check out information about the Pass the Test program, a free program to help students prepare for the test, outside of school hours.
