Catholic schools have been using the HSPT as part of the admissions process for more than 50 years, and the test has not changed in years. HSPT has stood the test of time and can be quite a challenging test.
1. The First Real Test
If your child hasn’t taken a standardized test before, this will be the first time he will sit for a long test. The HSPT evaluates five categories, namely: language, reading, and mathematics proficiency lasting over two and a half hours.
2. Test of Spontaneity
Students are used to study in categories for their grade, whether language or math, but the test introduces an element of spontaneity by testing different grade levels and different categories.
That is why it is best to prepare for the test to perfect his or her test-taking skills, review basic concepts, learn about pacing during the test, etc. Although the material on the HSPT should be familiar to students, since questions are taken from standard middle and elementary classes, the student still needs to practice in a structured manner.
The Hillview Prep Smart Scoring System for HSPT introduces a structured manner that tests elements such as, conceptual understanding, pacing during test, assesses you real time to discover your learning style and gives you feedback right when in matters most. The Hillview Prep Gateway Series for HSPT helps the student stay engaged with tutors and her material at any time, from anywhere, on any device.
