When Should my Daughter/Son Start Preparing for the SHSAT?

The SHSAT is taken in the early fall of a student's 8th grade. It is a good idea to take a practice test during the winter or spring of a student's 7th grade to see how they are initially performing. Most students improve anywhere from 50 to 100 points depending on their level of effort and places of need, and it is easier to plan an approach to study if the level and areas of necessary improvement are ascertained early. Contact us to set up  a free practice test to get started on building a personalized test prep strategy.

 

I Have Been Told That My Child Should Only Practice His/Her Strongest Subject. Is This True?

As with all education-related topics, the answer depends on the student’s ability in different topic areas and the knowledge that the student brings to the class. The ELA and math sections of the SHSAT are graded separately on a non-linear scale. For example, a student improving from 10 to 11 correct questions on one section will have their overall score increase by nine points, a student improving from 30 to 31 correct questions correct will have their score improve by 4 points, and a student improving from 41 to 42 correct questions will improve their score by six points; therefore, a student begins the SHSAT course having gotten 30 questions correct on one section and 41 on another section, then an improvement of one question on the stronger section will yield the student 50% more points. However, because questions have different levels of difficulties and students improve on question types at different rates, it can often be easier to improve from 30 to 32 correct questions than 41 to 42 correct questions. When studying for the exam, it is best to identify the problem types on which students can most easily improve and approach these before tackling more complex problem types; it is often the easiest material over which students stumble due to lack of familiarity. For optimal results, students should take a practice test with EnrichmentEdu and work with the instructor to create a personalized study strategy.
