OSSLT this year is Thursday, March 31, 2016

The Grade 10 test is based on the reading and writing expectations in all subject areas up to the end of Grade 9. These skills are the basis for learning in all subject areas throughout both elementary and secondary school.

All students in Ontario who entered Grade 9 in September 2000 or later and are working toward an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) must write this test.

It shows students how strong their literacy skills are while they still have time to improve them before finishing school.
