Administration Dates of Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test in School Year 2020-2021

The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (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 on the same date, usually in late March each year.

The first administration period for the Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics field test for students completing in-person Grade 9 academic and applied courses will be November 2020. EQAO will work with individual school boards so that students can take the field test upon completion of their mathematics course.

Monthly administrations for students completing in-person courses will take place thereafter until June 2021.

EQAO plans to administer the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) online in spring 2021. Additional details will follow at a later date.
