How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The High School Placement Test, often referred to as the HSPT, is a test many competitive parochial high schools use to evaluate applicants. Produced by the Scholastic Testing Service, but administered by individual schools, your child may be required to take either the "open" or "closed" version of the test. The open version is scored by the school itself, while the closed version is scored by Scholastic. Both versions of the test cover verbal and quantitative skills, reading, math, and language. The closed version of the test, however, may include sections on religion, mechanical aptitude, or science, depending on the requirements of school your child is applying to. If your child is preparing for the HSPT, let Varsity Tutors connect you with a tutor in Essex County, NJ that could help them be ready for the test.
The five core HSPT subjects are assessed with 298 multiple choice questions in a two and a half hour exam. That means student have approximately 30 seconds to answer each of the individual problems. That can seem demanding for an 8th grader, but the prestigious schools that use the HSPT are trying to identify the best and brightest among their applicants. Developing a sound test taking strategy is essential for a standout performance on the HSPT. Varsity Tutors will assist you in connecting with a professional tutor in Essex County who could help your child refine their approach to the HSPT.
