NEW PSAT-NMSQT

  • Who: 11th graders
  • Where: At school
  • When: Oct. 19, Oct. 22, or Nov. 2, 2016
  • Scholarships: Used by scholarship programs, including the National Merit Scholarship Program, to look for eligible students.

The New PSAT will be a longer test than the old one: It is now 2 hours and 45 minutes. Evidence-Based Reading and Writing in the Reading Test, followed by a Writing and Language Test. There will also be heavy math testing. Bye-bye calculator! The Math Test is now divided into two portions: Math Test – Calculator and Math Test – No Calculator. Do well on this test and you’ll qualify for some amazing college scholarships!

The New PSAT will have a greater emphasis on the meaning of words in extended contexts and on how word choice shapes meaning, tone, and impact. There will be no guessing penalty. The new PSAT will have a rights-only scoring (a point for a correct answer but no deduction for an incorrect answer; blank responses have no impact on scores). Scores will be reported on a shared common score scale with the SAT: The scale ranges for the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 scores are 320–1520 for the total score, 160–760 for each of two section scores, and 8–38 for test scores.

About the Hunter Entrance Exam

Q1: What is the Hunter High School Admissions Test?

The HCHS admissions test is an English & math based examination given to students in the 6th grade to determine admission into Hunter High School for grades 7-12.

Q2: How many times can my child take the Hunter High School Exam?

You have only ONE chance to be admitted into Hunter High School via an admissions exam taken in grade 6. As stated on their website, “It is given once per year, with no make-up dates or rescheduling.”

Q3: How can my child take the Hunter High School Test?

You can take the test by invitation only. Your child must score in the 90th percentile or higher on the ELA and on the Math in Grade 5 state test to qualify. If you do not have ELA or Math State scores in Grade 5, then you must submit terra nova or ERB scores from the private school directly to Hunter. MAP scores (UNIS) are not accepted.

Q4: What are the cut-off scores for the ELA & Math?

The cut off for 2017 is 358 in MATH AND 346 in ELA. No Exceptions.

Q5: How Competitive is Admission to Hunter High School?

This school is absolutely excellent, on the glitzy Upper East Side, and completely free, so competition is high and fierce. Students from all 5 boroughs of New York City will be competing for just a few select spots. It is one of the most selective public high schools in the United States. From 3,000 test-takers, about 175 are offered admission on the basis of the exam. Hunter College High School is consistently¬¬¬ ranked as one of the top public high schools in the nation. Only about 6% of the students who take the Hunter High School exam get into the High School. This means that it is harder to get into Hunter High School than it is to get admitted into Harvard University, a school with an 8% admission rate.

Q6: What kinds of colleges do HCHS students later attend?

Each year, approximately 25% of HCHS students are accepted into Ivy League colleges (Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Brown and Dartmouth). Several more attend Stanford University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

About the Anderson Entrance Exam

Students in Grades 5 and 6 take this test

The Anderson School is an academically selective public school that seeks a diverse student population and welcomes applications from students of all races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds living in any of the five boroughs.

Anderson is a K-8 school; therefore, fifth graders currently enrolled in Anderson are guaranteed a seat in our sixth grade if they choose to continue at Anderson. However, Anderson expands their class size in sixth grade and has approximately 12 seats available in sixth grade for fall 2017.

Students must apply directly to the Anderson School using the school’s own application. The application is separate from the district middle school application that public school students will submit to their guidance counselor. Applying to Anderson does not jeopardize a student’s chances of being made an offer from any other school.

After the invited students take the onsite admissions test, the acceptance list and ranked wait list will be created using our Admissions Rubric (below). Admissions notifications will be emailed to families in May, at the same time as all other Department of Education middle school placement notifications.

You must register to take this test by December 1, 2016. In early January, detailed information about the onsite admissions test will be emailed to the parents of the 200 students who are invited to take the test and will also be posted on the Anderson page. The test is hard, written by Anderson teachers, and consists of a writing assignment (essay comparing 2 texts) and a math assessment of about twenty problems.

How to Apply

1. Reserve a seat for Bard’s writing and math assessment. These tests run from September to December 1 of 8th grade. If applying to both schools, you only need to take the assessment once. Please do not register for an assessment at both Queens and Manhattan.
2. Bring a copy of your 7th grade report card (if applying to 10th grade, please bring your 8th grade final report card) on the day you are scheduled to take the assessment. The report card is for our records and will not be returned to you. Do not bring an original.
3. Rank BHSEC Manhattan and/or BHSEC Queens on your Department of Education (DOE) High School Application. Remember, if you are applying to both BHSEC Manhattan and BHSEC Queens, you need to list them as two separate choices. The Program Code for the Manhattan campus is M51A, and the Program Code for the Queens campus is Q74B.
4. Students who demonstrate strong abilities in their grades and the assessment will be invited to an interview at BHSEC. Not all students will be asked to interview at BHSEC.

ABOUT THE ELA AND MATH TEST:

Q. What is the “ELA” and Math test?

A. “ELA” stands for “English Language Arts.” This includes critical reading (passages of prose and poetry), writing, short answers, short responses, extended responses, grammar, and vocabulary. The “Math” State test consists of core math topics that will be tested from grades 3 to 8. Like the ELA, each grade receives its own test. This particular test will have many more multi-step, interpretive questions for students to decipher. The core curriculum math standards will be tested depending on the child’s grade level, and each grade (3 to 8) receives its on Math State test. For example, the new Math test will have more questions pertaining to fractions as opposed to easy straightforward questions with whole numbers that were tested on prior exams.

Q. What grades take the ELA and Math state tests?

A. New York City and State public and many private school students take these examinations starting in the 3rd grade. The last set of ELA and Math exams occurs in the 8th grade, at which point many students take other State Math and English tests, known as Regents exams.

Q. What is the “Common Core”?

A. Every state has guidelines, which are basic minimum standards for achievement in Math, English, Science and Social Studies. Students are expected to meet these “core” standards to go on to the next level of schooling. For example, students are expected to comprehend primary and secondary sources. Additionally, language standards will be assessed within the context of reading passages.

Q. What are the upcoming dates for the ELA and Math exams?

A. The ELA and Math exams are on April of each school year. These tests are divided into “booklets” and students take them each day, one booklet at a time.

Q. Who administers these exams?

A. The New York State Department of Education is responsible for administering the ELA and Math State tests each year. The Department also administers the Regents Exams, which are required tests in virtually every subject in New York City public and many private schools.

Q. Why have the ELA and Math state tests changed?

A. New York State has adopted more comprehensive core standards that each child needs to follow in order to be promoted to the next grade level. The new state exams reflect these changes. Long ago, there was “social promotion,” a time when students were promoted due to their age, but that is no longer the case now.

About the Specialized HS Test (SHSAT):

Who takes this test?

Students in grades 8 or 9 who wish to apply to New York City’s Specialized High Schools must take the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) and submit an application listing their choices of schools in order of preference. This year the SHSAT test given to eighth graders is at the end of October each year.

What is on the test?

The SHSAT is a timed multiple-choice test with two sections, verbal and math that must be completed in a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes. In the first section, students demonstrate their verbal reasoning and reading comprehension by ordering sentences to form a coherent paragraph, answering questions of logical reasoning, and analyzing and interpreting texts. In the second section, students demonstrate their math skills by answering computational and word questions that require arithmetic, algebra, probability, statistics, geometry, and trigonometry (on the Grade 9 test only).

How are the results reported?

The results are reported as scale scores. Scale scores are based on the number of questions that the student answered correctly, combined with the difficulty level of the questions. Students receive scale scores for the verbal and mathematics sections of the test, which are added together to make their composite score. After scores are released to the schools in March, students and their parents may review the results of their examination by requesting an appointment with a Department of Education assessment specialist.

How are the results used?

Students are ranked according to their scores on the test, and assigned to a school depending on their rank on the list, the priority in which they placed schools, and the seats available at each.school.
The Specialized high schools that require the SHSAT are: Bronx High School of Science; Brooklyn Latin; Brooklyn Technical High School; High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College; High School for American Studies at Lehman College; Queens High School for Sciences at York College; Staten Island Technical High School and Stuyvesant High School). Read the Specialized High School handbook to learn more about applying to one of these schools.

How can I request an appointment to review a copy of my child’s answer sheet?

After the schools, students, and parents/guardians are informed of the results, parents/guardians accompanied by their child may review a copy of the student’s answer sheet by requesting an appointment with a representative from the Office of Assessment. The deadline to request a test view was April 1, 2016. The Office of Assessment will not be able to accommodate requests received after the deadline.

About the HSPT

The Scholastic Testing Service High School Placement Test, or HSPT, is given to eighth-graders seeking admission to specific Catholic High Schools. Schools use exam results to make admissions decisions, to place applicants, and to determine scholarship awards.

The HSPT is 2 ½ (two and a half hours) long and contains 298 multiple-choice questions divided into five sections—Verbal, Quantitative, Reading, Mathematic, and Language Skills. The Scholastic Testing Service also provides a choice of one optional test in Mechanical Aptitude, Science, or Catholic Religion, but many schools do not administer these tests, and these test results are not included in the percentile ranking.

Each question answered correctly on the HSPT is worth one point. There is no guessing penalty for wrong answers. Your raw score, or the total number of points you earn, is converted to a scaled score ranging from 200 to 800.

The Scholastic Testing Service will also determine your percentile rank according to your scaled score and compare you against others who took this test. Your percentile rank is very important. Each school has a different cut off score for the HSPT.

The HSPT is administered at the school to which you want to apply. Contact the school to find out where and when the test is offered. Schools will provide registration forms, a handbook of instructions, and an admission ticket to the exam. A registration fee is usually required although the actually fees vary by school.

Example of an HSPT HS: Regis High School is an all boys Roman Catholic High School. It has one of the most competitive admissions processes in New York accepting a shocking 14% of applicants. It is not a surprise to know that Regians will go on to colleges with similar rates; the top 25. It is the Alma Mater of such people as Patrick Fitzgerald (US Attorney and CIA Leak Investigation Special Prosecutor), Greg Giraldo (comedian and television personality), Edward Conlon (New York Times Bestselling Author of Blue Blood and part time writer for The New Yorker) and other fairly well known people (see list at the Regis High School New York Wikipedia entry). Regis almost guarantees admission to top colleges because of the value of having it on a college application. Superior students at Regis consistently matriculate to Harvard, Princeton and Yale. Only the top students from the tri-state area are accepted after a rigorous application and interview process.

ABOUT THE NYS REGENTS EXAMS:

The New York State Regents Examinations can be a major obstacle for students to overcome. Passing these standardized tests is typically required for graduation, and they serve as important indicators of a student’s progress and success. However, many students struggle on these exams unnecessarily.

There are 16 Regents Exams offered. Links to past tests, solutions, and scoring keys for all exams can be found here: http://www.nysedregents.org/

Why should I care about the regents?

A local diploma just doesn’t cut it. It’s not enough nowadays. In order to get a competitive edge, you should not only settle for a Regents diploma but should try for an advanced one. An Advanced Regents Diploma not only shows mastery of a subject but may also exempt you from taking certain courses in college.

How can I go from a 90 to a 99 on my regents?

Add an extra line below each essay Q, never repeat the Q in the A. Always use the entire space for the answer, and look over the test to see if one part can help you answer another part. Be careful when changing an answer. Try to remember why you chose that answer in the first place. The MC Qs will help you answer the essay Qs.

Why Do I Need To Prep for the Regents?

The NYS Scholarship for academic excellence awards 5,000 students who graduate from a NYS High School “with honors” (90+) on the Regents Exams at least $2,000 in scholarship money. See www.hesc.ny.gov for more information.
An Advanced Regents Diploma is an honor and added credential. Many colleges and universities, especially in New York, give admissions preferences to students with an Advanced Regents Diploma.

Also, in order for students to avoid taking remediation/prerequisite/useless courses in most New York City CUNY colleges, they need to get an 80 or higher on the all of the math regents. Taking high school math while in college is a tremendous waste of time and money.

Furthermore, most College Now programs require at least an 80 on the math regents. See www.CollegeNow.cuny.edu for more information.

Sure, you can try to self-study at home, but you are taking a risk, and it is much more likely you will study at Kweller Prep. Kweller Prep has a small group setting, with outstanding instructors, tons of practice material, snacks and refreshments.

Kweller Suggests: It is a wise choice to take the Algebra Regents in Grade 8. If your school doesn’t offer it, you can ask your local public school (for a favor) to sit in on the Algebra Regents, so that you can enter Grade 9 with the HS credit, and progress to Geometry in Grade 10, Trigonometry in Grade 11, Pre-Calculus in Grade 11, and AP Calculus in Grade 12. Try to take a science Regents in Grade 8 as well, so that you can hit classes like AP Chemistry or AP Physics or AP Biology in Grade 12. You need at least 2 AP Classes to secure admissions to a top college.
