Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT)

Since the 2017 reformatting of the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) the exam has undergone small changes each year since. I make every effort to stay current with those changes.

  • The English Language Arts (ELA) section includes questions that address revising/editing skills.

  • in addition it will have reading passages  - informational and literary - followed by 6–10 questions testing the ability to understand, analyze, and interpret texts from a variety of genres. All ELA questions will be multiple choice.

  • The math section includes five “grid-in” questions, in which students must solve a computational question and provide the correct numerical answer, rather than selecting from various multiple choice options; the math section will also continue to have multiple choice word problems and computational questions.

  • All multiple choice questions will have 4 answer choices.

  • Each section (ELA and Math) will include 57 items: 47 in each section will be scored, with each question worth 1 raw score point, and the remaining 10 items in each section will be field test items that are not used in determining a student’s score.

  • PLEASE NOTE: The scoring process (creation of a "scaled score") is not published.
