Should passing the OSSLT be a mandatory requirement to receive a high school diploma?

  • Yes, passing the OSSLT should be required to get your diploma.

    The OSSLT is an important part of the education evaluation process. It provides information on how our education system is working. It also ensures that graduates are qualified. It is to easy for a small school to pass a star athlete on reasons other than their educational abilities. The OSSLT prevents this abuse from giving away a free diploma.

  • Emotionaly and mentally down

    As the passing mark is 75% or 300/400 which isn't fair because you can lose marks by 5 or 10 marks which is annoying and if you can't pass that exam you aren't able to get your diploma which is causing fear in students which causes the to feel down emotionally and mentally because they can't pass it and when they do the exam on their second chance they have fear which blocks them to be successful. So finally the exam should be not held or make the passing mark a bit lower 60%is fair also I am saying this because I have seen many students are feeling down because they fail and they know it won't decide their future!

  • Useless and Unnessisary

    It's not like I'm going to get a job that requires opinion paragraphs or news reports.
    Also the osslt is extremely unfair who have just learned or is learning english, and those who have learning disabilities and/or have mental disorders that adds more struggle to their learning. Especially since the passing mark is 300/400, which is 75%. Sure you could argue and say that it make sure that they don't get passed easily. But that's what having 60% the passing grade. To make sure they don't get off easy. It's also harder to help students in a bigger school of like 2000 then say 160 students. You could argue that it's necessary for jobs like nurses and reports, fine. Bit make the test only required for those job. I do not need to take the literacy test to act a role on stage, or how to take a picture of a couple, or how to make music.
    So unless it's mandatory for everyone to being nurses, reporters or forever be fucking homeless or have a shitty home and food and have everyone judge you for shame cuz you didn't pass the literacy test in grade 10. The literacy test will forever be useless and Unnessisary.

  • Stupid waste of time

    Waste of money, time, resources and valuable teacher's time on grading thousands of papers. Absolutely no use for future jobs and only add unnecessary stress to students. Students must not need OSSLT to pass secondary school. EQAO is more purposeful, but OSSLT is an not needed. Minimum passing mark of 75% only adds to the pressure.

With his robotic dog Goddard always ready to lend advice, and his best friends Carl and Sheen, Jimmy tries to attend Lindberg Elementary like any other kid. And like any other kid, Jimmy often finds himself in a bit of fun mischief.

  • You Fuckin nerds

    Ontario's literacy test is biased against minorities and those who are deaf or have learning disabilities, so it should not be a mandatory graduation requirement this year, a lawyer argued Friday.

    David Baker, who represents four students who won't graduate this year only because they can't pass the Grade 10 literacy test, wants a judge to grant an injunction so high-school students who can't pass the test - or a recently introduced literacy course - can still graduate this year and go on to post-secondary institutions.

    Mr. Baker told court that his clients believe the test, introduced in 2001, "discriminates against disability, race or ethnic origins."

  • You dumb fucks

    This literacy is a total waist of fucking time it just puts more work on the students shoulders and makes the students super stressed going into grade 10. The literacy test should not be a necessary need for grade 10 high school students. Stop making the do the fucking test... Please

  • Unfair for following reasons

    There's so many cases where you have students coming in from countries where English is not common. They can barely get a sentence out but have to write an opinion paragraph? By the way, these same students excel in everything else. It's ridiculous and separates who can and who can't speak English.

  • Literally no point to it.

    Most of the things on the OSSLT are not required for at least 70% of current jobs. I do not need to know how to write a newspaper report for a majority of careers, which is 15% of the full mark. It is also filled to the brim with loads of bullshit which most people will not use in the future. They could just make the test for grade 12 and have those going into a career path which involves literacy to take it.

  • It's a waste of time and everything.

    Well first it's useless because it puts a lot of stress on students, second it doesn't prove shit. Third no one wants to do the stupid test because it has no value, we have a fucking news report in there, tell me what's the point of that am I trying to be a news reporter? No right then why? Also it's to see how good our teachers are teaching us, then make them do the stupid test not us. We have to worry about Exams, Midterms and so many other things, and then this like holly, they think studying is easy, that shit ain't, you guys created light bulbs and all the easy things we have to do hard shit now a days. So get this shit out of here, because it's worthless like the people who made it.
