EQAO Technical Difficulties

All grade 10 students across the province had an opportunity to write the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test this morning.  This was the Educational Quality and Accountability Office’s (EQAO) attempt to move the test to an online format.  Unfortunately, after waiting for 90 minutes, we were not able to access the test at All Saints, and we had to cancel the opportunity.  EQAO identified that this was a technical difficulty at their end - the internet and bandwidth access at All Saints was not the problem.  We understand that this was the result at many other schools across the province.  I appreciate the work of the staff who prepared for our various testing environments and readied our students and technical resources.  I personally got around to each of our classes where students were writing, and apologized for the inconvenience as I thanked them for their patience.  I reminded students that we will have another opportunity to fulfill the literacy test requirement on March 30th, 2017
