***Changes to the OSSLT***

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) -

tentative administrations dates for the 2021-2022 school year.

Wed., Oct. 13, to Wed., Dec. 1, 2021,

with individual student results reported by the end of January 2022.

Wed., Mar. 23, to Wed., May 18, 2022,

with individual student results reported by the end of June 2022.

The field test is being made available to students who are

learning in-person and working toward

their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

This will allow the opportunity for students

in Grades 10 and 11,

and non-graduating Grade 12 students,

to attempt the test and,

if successful, have it counted on their transcript.


As the literacy graduation requirement

for all students graduating

during the 2021–2022 school year

has been waived,

graduating students do not need

to take the field test.
