OSSLT Online Assessment - Board Communication October 20, 2016

This morning, many students at secondary schools in the Limestone District School Board experienced difficulties in completing the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) online Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSSLT) pilot.

Unfortunately, there were widespread technical difficulties with the OSSLT network, and EQAO was forced to cancel today’s assessment. This affected most school boards across Ontario as more than 100,000 students at 900 schools were to write the OSSLT today.

We would like to recognize all of the work that schools have done to prepare for the OSSLT. Today’s outcome is not reflective of the efforts of students and staff who went above and beyond in preparing for today, and in working through the technical issues. Their perseverance is commendable and we thank each of them for their understanding.

While we are disappointed at this outcome, we support efforts to modernize assessments. At this time, we are awaiting specific information from EQAO on how we will move forward.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we await further direction from EQAO.

Cancellation of Today's EQAO Assessment from EQAO website!!   October 20, 2016

We acknowledge that we are experiencing widespread technical issues with the online OSSLT network.

We regret to inform you that we have cancelled today’s assessment.

Please pause all students on the Proctor Websites and log out of the Kiosk. Instruct your students to discontinue taking the assessment. Further information will be provided to directors of education to help them communicate to their school communities shortly.

We recognize all of the work that schools have done to prepare for this trial. We are disappointed at the outcome of this trial and sincerely apologize for this development.
