The HSPT is a multiple choice exam administered by parochial high schools to determine student admission, placement and scholarship awards for eighth graders applying to the ninth grade.
The HSPT is comprised of the following five sections: Verbal Skills, Quantitative Skills, Reading Skills, Mathematics Skills, and Language Expression Skills. Please note, the HSPT may include a sixth supplemental section determined by each school.
The HSPT is coachable, and preparing for the test will make a positive impact in a student's score, stamina and confidence.
The HSPT exam is 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The test can be administered in January or February. Contact the school for admissions requirements and registration information.
The number of questions that answered correctly is added up for each subtest. There is no penalty for guessing.
The number of correct answers is converted to standard scores and national percentile rankings for each subtest. The national percentile tells what percentage of students had scores below yours in a national sample. National percentiles range from 1 (low) to 99 (high). A percentile rank of 50 is exactly average.
The composite scores (Total Cognitive Skills, Total Basic Skills, and Battery Composite scores) are computed in the same way. The raw scores are added together from the subtests that make up each composite score and are then converted to standard scores and national percentiles.
