SHSAT Updates

Each student’s arrival time listed on their test ticket IS NOT the time the test will begin. On the day of the test, every student must first be escorted to their testing room, hear detailed instructions, and complete paperwork before the test begins. All students should expect to begin their exam one hour or more after the arrival time.

·         Arrival time for 8th grade students testing at their current DOE public school: students should arrive at their school’s normal start time, unless told otherwise by their school.

·         Students who do not have extended time testing accommodations have 180 minutes to take the exam. Students in this situation will finish their exam approximately 4 hours after the arrival time on their test ticket.

·         Students who have extended time testing accommodations have up to 360 minutes to take the exam, plus two 15-minute breaks. Students in this situation will finish their exam anywhere from 4 to 8 hours after their arrival time, depending on how much time the student needs to take the exam.


Preparation :

·         Students should get lots of sleep the night before the test and eat breakfast that morning. 

·         Students should pack a snack and water to bring to your testing site. Note that students will not be able to eat during the test. And don’t forget your mask!  

·         Each student must complete the DOE health screening questionnaire the morning of the test, and be ready to show the results to the test site when they arrive. Anyone (including students and family members) entering DOE buildings will not be allowed entry without this completed questionnaire.

·         Students should bring sharpened Number 2 pencils, erasers, water, and a silent non-calculator watch to keep time. Any student may bring a highlighter, a pencil grip, a magnifying glass, or a slant board if needed.

·         Students should not bring cameras or personal electronic devices such as a calculator, calculator watch, smart watch, MP3 player/iPod, tablet/iPad, or eBook reader. Cell phones must be turned off and not in use while in the building. 

·         If a student gets sick at the test site, they should tell staff as soon as possible. Sick students will be sent home, and they can request a make-up test through their current school counselor. Please be aware that these make - up sessions, if granted, will be held at a centralized location. 

·         Test preparation and practice tests are on our website.
