High School Competency Test (HSCT)

Assessment Home | HSCT Home | HSCT Report Home

Minimum Student Performance Skills

The communications and mathematics sections of the HSCT are composed of grade 11 basic skills that represent the minimum expectations for graduation from high school. The test questions are constructed to measure student achievement of these skills.

Although not included in the HSCT Web page, there are reports that include information on the average number of questions answered correctly for each skill tested. When considering these data, one must first consider the total number of questions used to measure each skill. The number of questions varies from as few as three questions to as many as 11 questions. These data do not permit precise comparisions of a student's performance on one of these skills with others in the school, district, or state.
