Introduction

The OSSLT is based on the reading and writing skills in all subject areas up to the end of grade 9, but is the Grade 10 test of reading and writing skills a good idea? Some people prefer the idea, whereas others hate it. In my opinion, I believe that the grade 10 test of reading and writing skills is a good idea; there are three main reasons that support my opinion. First, the OSSLT shows students how strong their literacy skills are.

To sum up the above arguments, the OSSLT not only can shows the students where the weakness is and reminds them to work hard in English section, but also helps the teacher to figure out the more effective methods in order to teach students English in a better way.
