Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT)

For students graduating in the 2020-21 school year, the Minister of Education has waived the literacy graduation requirement.

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Requirement

The Ontario secondary school literacy test (OSSLT) is administered in grade 10. The literacy test is based on the provincial language expectations associated with the grade 9 curriculum. If a student is not successful in the literacy test in the grade 10 year, he/she will have additional opportunities to fulfill the literacy requirement. There are ministry policies and guidelines which allow for accommodations for special needs students writing the high school literacy test. Students taking ESL only take the test when they have reached an appropriate level in their language ability.
