The Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) are tests that measure school and individual student progress toward Maryland's High School Core Learning Goals . Passing the HSA is a graduation requirement beginning with the graduating class of 2009.
The passing scale scores for the High School Assessments are: Algebra 412, Biology 400, English 396, and Government 394.
If a student does not pass an HSA, he or she can still fulfill the HSA requirement for the Maryland diploma by earning at least the minimum score on each test and a combined score of 1602. The combined score is the total of all HSA test scores. The minimum HSA scale scores are Algebra 402, Biology 391, English 386, and Government 387.
