Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT)




October 21, 2021


Dear Parent/ Guardian, 

As many of you are aware, your Grade 11 child is required to write the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) this year. The OSSLT measures whether students are meeting the standards for literacy up to the end of Grade 9. Successful completion of the test is required in order for your child to graduate with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma. 

This year's OSSLT, commonly known as the Literacy Test, will be administered during Quad 1, between November 1 and November 8. The test will be administered in an online format, and your child will be writing with their Period 1 class. If your child is Cohort C, they will be writing in-person with their period 1 class. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Duke Kelly, ext. 29004. 

The individual student results will be reported by the end of January 2022. 

As part of the school's initiative to work towards student success, the Literacy Committee recommends the practice test available through the QR code below, in order to help students prepare for the upcoming Literacy Test.


We are confident by working together, your child will be successful. Sincerely,

The St. Michael Literacy Committee 

Ms. Baldini, Ms. Della Mea, Ms. Giancola, Ms. Kiss & Ms. Duke-Kelly

What is Netiquette?

Netiquette is short for "Internet etiquette."  It is a code of conduct for good and appropriate behaviour on the internet.  Similar to etiquette it is a respectful way of conducting oneself while engaging with others online. 



The Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board offers some useful guides for both parents and students on using the D2L,  Google Classroom and Teams platforms.
