HSPT Tutoring & Test Preparation
The HSPT (High School Placement Test) is an assessment used by certain high schools to as an admissions and/or class placement determinate. The test is designed by Scholastic Testing Services (STS), Inc., but is provided and administered by each individual high school that uses it. As such, signing-up, scoring requirements, and other logistical aspects are handled by the high schools.
Exam sections include:
- Language Skills
The total duration is around 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The exam is typically given to eighth grade students (again, check with your local schools). Eighth grade might seem early to consider your student’s “academic career”, but today even early high school classes impact college opportunities. Also, high-caliber high school classes (AP’s and IB’s, for example) may exempt students from certain classes at the university level or accelerate them to higher-level classes
Generally, students are not permitted to retake the exam. And unlike other standardized exams (eg: SAT, ACT), there are no official practice questions provided by STS. While your standard classes are intended to be adequate preparation, the fact is that some students want to be more than adequate. And walking into the exam totally unfamiliar with the format and style of questions can be a detriment for students.
