Literacy Test Help

Spring OSSLT Workshops

All students writing the Spring Literacy Test are invited to attend important workshops to help them get ready for the online test.

Testing will occur between Monday, May 9 – Friday, May 13

During their Grade 10 year, students across Ontario participate in the OSSLT.  “The OSSLT measures whether students are meeting the minimum standard for literacy across all subjects up to the end of Grade 9.  Successful completion of the literacy test is one of the requirements to earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma.  All students across the province write this test. ”

In preparation for the test, students at Lockerby Composite School are supported in their classes, participating in extensive workshops, completing posted Google Classroom activities, as well as participating in a school administered practice test.

If a parent/guardian have any questions or concerns they are asked to call the school and speak with the Program Leader of Literacy.
