What are the two main areas that are assessed on the OSSLT? Reading and Writing What is the weighting of each? 45% writing;

55% reading What are the three types of reading skills that are assessed? Explicit answer is on the page; Implicit answer needs students to infer; Making Connections student needs to connect answers to themselves or another event or experience

Which of the reading skills is most heavily weighted? Implicit questions of the 45 multiple choice reading questions, at least 20 require students to infer. How do I infer? An

inference is using facts, observations, and logic or reasoning to come to an assumption or conclusion You do it all the timebut here is how: Use clues from the reading details, facts, descriptions to justify what & why you think something. Sometimes people tell you to read between the lines no one has actually said it but based on what is happening

you infer it! Inferring here is an example: Yesterday at BDSS I saw many students wearing pink shirts and signing the antibullying poster. I

infer that the students at our school really care about each other and want help end bullying. The four writing skills that are assessed on the test: 1. 2. 3. 4.

BDSS highest score has been 395 Maybe this year YOU will get 400! What is the approximate value of a single MC question?

A single MC question is worth about 5 marks of the required 300. Leave no blanks behind!

In the past, we had 23 students who missed passing the test by one or two MC questions (only 5 or 10 points). You dont want this to happen to you. So, whats the point? The point is every mark counts. The more you know and can use on the test,
