The HSPT provides normative measures in the following cognitive and basic skills areas: verbal and cognitive skills as well as reading, mathematics, and language.
A High School Placement Test (HSPT®) is required for all students applying to 9th and 10th grade. The Diocese of Oakland will administer the HSPT at each of the nine East Bay Catholic high schools, including at O’Dowd. Parents will receive a copy of their child’s Student Score Report via email directly from Scholastic Testing Service, the afternoon of March 19, 2021.
