Test grading and Strategy

You are not penalized for wrongs answers and so it is better to guess that to leave a question blank. HSPT™ scores range between a low score of 200 and a high score of 800. The minimum score that signifies a pass is dependent on the high school of choice. Each sets its own acceptable minimum requirement. It is possible to send a student’s scores to various high schools to improve chances of getting placement in a high school.
