The Saso HSPT® Diagnostic Assessment is designed to let you know how
prepared your 7th grader is for the HSPT® -- the High School Placement
Test -- which is one of the most important criteria Catholic high
schools use to determine admissions.

Suggestions for the
next steps in your child's preparation for the HSPT®
In previous years, we offered separate math
and English assessments, but beginning in 2018, we will be giving a
complete model HSPT® test as our HSPT® Diagnostic Assessment. What better way to
see how prepared your child is for the HSPT® than for him or her to take a model HSPT® exam?
The HSPT® Diagnostic Assessment will include all
five parts of the HSPT®-- Verbal, Quantitative, Reading, Math, and
Language. It will contain the same number of questions as the actual
HSPT® and it will be timed exactly as the HSPT® is timed.
The entire assessment will take three
hours, and run from 9 am to 12 pm.
You will receive immediate feedback as to
your child’s performance on the HSPT® Diagnostic Assessment. Students will take
home the assessment test booklet and their graded scantron answer
sheets, along with an evaluation page with their scores and suggestions
for further preparation for the HSPT®.
Included with your registration for the HSPT® Diagnostic Assessment is a free
downloadable vocabulary workbook. The workbook consists of 240
vocabulary words, along with fill-ins and quizzes to test your child’s
knowledge of the words. Knowledge of vocabulary is a huge part of both
the Verbal and Reading sections of the HSPT® and this workbook will help your child
build a more extensive vocabulary and thus help prepare your child for
these two sections of the HSPT®.
HSPT®Diagnostic Assessments for 7th graders will
resume in March of 2019. Visit this space in January of 2019 for dates
