    My kid just took the SEHS exam this weekend:

    Total 3.5 hours

    4 sections:

    1) Reading Comprehension – 40 question (40 minutes): 6 passages with a mix of persuasive, informative, narrative and descriptive

    2) Language Arts – 54 questions (40 minutes): standard middle school stuff

    3) Math – 40 questions (40 minutes): mostly algebra 1, mixed with a little geometry and some basic algebra 2

    4) Vocab – 40 questions (15 minutes): finding most similar meaning word of a term that was used in a sentence for context.

    NO experimental section. Used fill-in bubble sheets. Can not go back to finish previous sections. They will mark unanswered question to prevent this.

    Hope this helps anyone interested

    I was on the GoCps website, and it says that results will be released on March 30th, but in the email I received it says that it will be announced on the 29th sometime between 5 and 11:59 pm, what should I believe?

      I see the confusion there.

      The pop up message says March 29th. I would believe that they would release this info on Friday the 29th, not on Sat.

      About a week away now!

    How do you register for SEHS exam? I don’t see it as an option the application where grades and NWEA MAP scores are listed.

    Thank you.

    I believe you had to finish the application and then register.  We can’t finish the application because we’re still not sure about ranking the programs so we’ll wait until we do the open houses.

      If you don’t finish your application quickly you would find a good date to take the test

    You can change your ranking until Dec 6th!

    How can I gauge how well my daughter might do on this test? She got her MAP results ….  Are the scores similar or higher in most students, statistically?

    Also, another question.  How much spelling is on the test?  My daughter has a real spelling issue.  And is any of the test written in or all multiple choice?   Thanks!!
