EQAO Testing is coming soon.
by +Aaron Hardy - Monday, 17 October 2016, 1:52 PM

For those that are scheduled to take the Online EQAO Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) on Thursday, October 20th, 2016, this week's task for staff and students is to familiarize yourself with the EQAO Online process and complete online practice tests. Please see the following link.


The EQAO Kiosk App can be downloaded here...

Make sure you Download this to the students desktops writing the test.


You will see 5 links to videos. Make sure you watch each one!!! Each video is short--roughly 1 minute. These videos show you how to open the practice tests, who the different sections of the test look, demonstrate the different tools you can use while taking the test and also how to use the text to speech function in some areas.

Then, you will see 4 links:

  • English Session 1
  • English Session 2
  • English 1 with text to speech accommodation; and 
  • English 2 with text to speech accommodation

There are 2 practice tests available, so please check or have your students check and practice, practice, practice!




Once we get closer to EQAO testing time, we will post another tutorial on how to get to the actual tests, and the links we will need to access.

I will be sending out the EQAO executable file for student desktops.

Have a great week!
