EQAO Online

This year, there are changes to the EQAO Literacy format as EQAO online is being introduced across the province.   On Oct 20th, Grade 10 students and previously eligible students in Grades 11 and 12 that were unsuccessful will write the OSSLT using the new online system.   On Oct 20th, the format of the day will be similiar to a past EQAO test  ie. there will be 2 - 75 minute sessions with a 15 minute break.   The major difference is that the test will be completed by students online.

 

The EQAO Online system will allow students to take the Literacy test in a supervised environment via a secure Internet connection.   Further information on the online test can be accessed at http://www.eqao.com/en/assessments/eqao-online/Pages/sample-online-osslt.aspx

 

In preparation for the Oct 20th OSSLT session,  there will a practice diagnostic session on Tuesday, Sept 27th during Period 1 with all students involved with the  OSSLT  this year.   We encourage all students to put their best effort into the diagnostic as we will get results for the test that we will share with them afterwards.   As well, the practice will give us the opportunity to work through any technical issues as well as to check the overall speed of the connections.  To access an online version of a practice test, go to: https://ontariotest.com/Practice/EQAOen

 

The online sample test is meant to give students the opportunity to become familiar with the online testing platform, its features, tools and navigation.  All students who will be writing the OSSLT online are encouraged to become familiar with the testing platform before the actual administration of the online test.
