The SHSAT is difficult. For most students, it’s way harder than schoolwork. Unfortunately, many parents are lured into a false sense of security because their child does well in school, but good grades do not necessarily translate into high SHSAT scores. Do NOT learn this lesson the hard way. Students can only take the SHSAT once per year, and admission to specialized high schools is entirely dependent on test scores. Make sure your child is prepared well before test day.
The first step is to take a mock exam. The results will serve as a roadmap for how much preparation your child needs and where they need to start. In addition, students need to know how to take a standardized test. Doing well on the SHSAT demands more than just knowing the material. Students must be skilled test takers. Unfortunately, students are almost never taught how to take tests the right way.
Fortunately, any student can become a good test taker if they get the right feedback. They need to know if they’re managing their time correctly, and as a parent, you need to know if they’re checking their work and if there’s a problem with test anxiety. Regular mock exams can’t give you this information. They can only show you the material that students need to learn, but not if they’re giving away points with test-taking errors. This can lead to a false sense of security that comes crashing down on test day.
Biometric Edge mock exams give you the information you need. We can show you the material that a student needs to learn and if they’re taking exams the right way. Our mock exam system measures pulse and blink rate. We track eye movement and record time per question. We can tell if students check their work. We can see if they’re re-reading passages when answering reading comprehension questions. We can tell how anxiety affects them and if their managing their time efficiently. This is crucial knowledge for students taking this highly competitive exam, and it can be the difference between getting into your top-choice school and getting rejected.
Biometric Edge’s online mock exams are convenient and adapt to your schedule. After your child’s exam, their results are available within seconds. You’ll receive:
