The High School Placement Test (HSPT®)
For over fifty years, academic high schools nationwide have used STS’ High School Placement Test (HSPT®) to assist with admissions, scholarship selection, and curriculum placement. The HSPT® is a comprehensive placement test for eighth graders for placement in the ninth grade. It provides a maximum of information in only one morning's testing time. The HPST® is published in two forms: the Closed Form and the Open Form.
Each year, STS publishes a new form of the Closed HSPT®. The contents of our tests are based on select items which have been piloted and studied to determine their effectiveness. Piloted test items are later introduced into the rotation of forms to help ensure testing integrity.
