Results improved on Grade 10 provincial literacy assessment

The Grade 10 provincial literacy assessment results improved for Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) in 2011. Results indicate that 84% of first-time participating students were successful on the provincial Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT), as compared to the provincial average of 83%. This represents a 2% increase in district results over last year.

Results for Academic, Applied and Locally Developed pathways exceeded the provincial average.

Results for students with special education needs continued to increase. The success rate for students with special education needs (excluding gifted students) was 60% which exceeded the provincial rate of 52%.

School highlights

A comprehensive report, containing results from all provincial assessments, will be presented to the Board in the fall 2011, once all data is available.

The purpose of the OSSLT is to determine whether students have achieved the minimum acceptable level of reading and writing skills described in The Ontario Curriculum, across all subjects, to the end of Grade 9. It was written in March 2011.
