The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Literacy in Grade 10


The purpose of the EQAO Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is to provide greater confidence in the literacy skills of students graduating with the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). 15,506 TDSB Grade 10 students were eligible to take the OSSLT for the first time in 2018-19. Of these students, 14,074 fully participated in the OSSLT (the other eligible students were deferred until a later administration, or they were absent during the test). Literacy is defined as having the reading and writing skills required to understand reading selections and to communicate through written forms. The OSSLT measures whether or not students are meeting the minimum standard for literacy across all subjects up to the end of Grade 9.
