This section provides information and resources to help educators analyze the results of the OSSLT and incorporate them into their improvement planning and communication with parents.
The document is designed to clarify the distinction between successful and unsuccessful performance on the OSSLT. This information will assist educators to help unsuccessful students understand what "getting better" at literacy looks like, to identify evidence that will help a student move from one category to another and to discuss areas for student improvement with parents.
This sample Individual Student Report shows how results for the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test are communicated to students.
Students who wish to appeal their results on the 2017 OSSLT must contact their school’s principal, who will submit the request on their behalf.
EQAO will notify principals of results directly.
