Entrance Exam General Requirements

VASJ administers the High School Placement Test (HSPT).  All students in the eighth grade must take the HSPT to be considered for admission to VASJ for ninth grade. VASJ administers the HSPT four times a year, beginning in October and ending in January.

The HSPT measures cognitive and basic skills. It has six subtests: Verbal Skills, Quantitative Skills, Reading, Mathematics, Language and Science. The following descriptions of the subtest are from Scholastic Testing Services, Inc.

Cognitive Skills Subtests

Verbal Skills - This test measures how well you perform reasoning tasks involving the use of words. Your ability in this area is related to your performance in language, reading and various areas within social studies.

Quantitative Skills - This test measures your ability to do reasoning problems involving numbers and quantities. This ability is related to performance in mathematics, sciences, and other areas that deal with numbers.

Basic Skills Subtests

Reading - This test measures your ability to remember important ideas and significant details, recognize central thought or purpose, make logical inferences and understand vocabulary in context.

Mathematics - This test not only measures your ability to perform arithmetic operations and apply math concepts to solve problems but also your knowledge of important concepts and ability to reason.
