How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is taken by students in grade eight and used as a factor in many private schools' admissions process. The HSPT consists of 300 questions and it takes approximately two and a half hours to complete.
The traditional HSPT is made up of five sections, including reading, language, math, quantitative skills, and verbal skills. The reading section is made up of reading comprehension and vocabulary. The language section focuses on capitalization, spelling, punctuation, and grammar. The math section is similar to the quantitative section, but it consists of algebra in addition to arithmetic and geometry. The quantitative skills section consists of arithmetical numbers, geometry numbers, geometric and non-geometric comparisons, and number series. The verbal skills section covers verbal classification, logic, analogies, antonyms, and synonyms.
