SCDSB​ Chair and Director ‘thankful’ for EQAO decision to score literacy testshttp://eas.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/board-news/63SCDSB​ Chair and Director ‘thankful’ for EQAO decision to score literacy tests<p>​Ontario’s Education, Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) announced today that it plans to score completed Ontario Secondary School Literacy Tests (OSSLT) and tests that had a significant portion complete. The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) has provided this information to staff, students and parents.<br><br>Read <a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/About%20Us/News%20Documents/Letter%20-%20Students%20and%20Parents.pdf" target="_blank">EQAO’s letter to parents</a>.<br><br>"We recognize the significance of this important graduation requirement," says Peter Beacock, Chair, SCDSB. "We are very pleased for our students that this decision has been made."<br><br>“I’m thankful for the response EQAO is giving to our students,” says Kathi Wallace, Director of Education. “I'm appreciative of their work to investigate whether the OSSLT could be scored and their consideration of the feedback from school boards and the education community. We're pleased many of our students will have their OSSLT marked and, if successful, will have completed their graduation requirement.”<br><br>EQAO has said the results will be available to schools in January. Schools can then identify students who will need to write the OSSLT again on March 30, 2017, or who may complete the literacy course in place of the OSSLT.<br><br><em>Information: </em><br><em>Kathi Wallace, Director of Education</em><br><em>705-734-6363 x11204</em></p>

Letter to students and parents from EQAO re: OSSLThttp://eas.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/board-news/61Letter to students and parents from EQAO re: OSSLT<p>​<strong><font size="2">​Online Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) Trial Cancellation </font></strong></p><strong><font size="2"> </font></strong><font face="Calibri,Calibri" size="3"><font face="Calibri,Calibri" size="3"><p>Dear student or parent, </p> <p>It is with great disappointment that we acknowledge that the October 20 trial of the online OSSLT was unsuccessful. Unfortunately, we experienced widespread technical issues with the network and, as a result, we had to cancel the trial assessment. We do not yet exactly know the root cause of the issue, but we are undertaking a thorough investigation. </p> <p>We recognize that students spent considerable time and energy preparing for the trial assessment and that they had hoped to be able to complete their literacy requirement. The outcome was not what we hoped for, and for this, we are truly sorry. Because of the widespread nature of the issue, we do not yet know the implications on scoring and reporting. </p> <p>As you know, this was a trial. This means students will still be considered first -time eligible for the regularly scheduled OSSLT in March 2017 to satisfy their literacy requirement. We can also confirm that the March OSSLT administration will include a pen-and-paper version of the assessment as originally planned. </p> <p>Again we are very sorry and promise to keep working with you to get this right. </p> <p>Sincerely, <br>Richard M. Jones, Ph.D. <br>Director, Assessment and Reporting <br>EQAO </p></font></font>
