How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT Reading?
The High School Placement Test's reading section contains 62 multiple-choice questions given over a short 25 minutes. The test provides passages that students must read before answering groups of questions related to each passage. These questions examine whether or not students have mastered a wide variety of academic skills and language arts concepts, from identifying the central theme of the passage and making inferences to picking up on key details, imagery, and aspects of authorial style. Because of the broad range of skills required for success on the HSPT reading section, some test-takers may have trouble demonstrating their full academic potential on this portion of the test. The vast amount of material that must be reviewed and question styles that must be practiced can leave students feeling lost and bewildered before ever entering the testing room, even if their grades have been high in academic coursework.
