How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is administered by private and parochial schools. It is taken by students in eighth grade and many private and parochial high schools use it as a part of their admissions process. The HSPT takes approximately two and a half hours to complete and consists of 300 questions.
The HSPT is traditionally made up of five sections. These include verbal skills, reading, quantitative skills, math, and language. The verbal skills section involves antonyms, analogies, logic, synonyms, and verbal classification. The reading section covers vocabulary and reading comprehension. The quantitative skills section examines number series, geometric and non-geometric comparisons, geometry numbers, and arithmetical numbers. The math section consists of geometry, arithmetic, and algebra. Finally, the language section looks at grammar, punctuation, spelling, and capitalization.
