How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
With something as advanced as the High School Placement Test, or HSPT, your 8th grader may not have the test-taking skills to approach it with confidence. They may be high achievers in school, and willing to take on studying themselves. Good traits as these may be, the HSPT presents unique challenges. It is not nationally standardized, and private and parochial schools administer their own versions of the test. One commonality is the scoring is scaled from 200 to 800, so your child wants to aim for the highest they can possibly achieve. There are specific ways of studying and preparing that can maximize their potential. A professional HSPT tutor in Fremont, CA, found by Varsity Tutors' directors, can create study sessions to try to help your child make the most of their abilities to excel on the exam.
The HSPT includes a language section, with multiple choice questions on grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization. There are 60 questions here. In the math section, 64 multiple choice questions cover problem solving, arithmetic, algebra, and geometry. Your child will also encounter vocabulary and reading comprehension, synonyms and antonyms, analogies, and more. To top it off, individual schools add their own sections to the 2.5 hour test; your child may encounter Catholic religion content, or even be tested on their science or mechanical aptitude skills.
