Stanford 10 Testing
How does the online testing work and why should I use it?
Online testing is an efficient and innovative method to evaluate student performance for Levels 4-12. (Students below Level 4 will take the paper tests.) With online assessments you get automated capture, real-time reporting and scoring, and immediate normative analysis. There is no physical commitment on the part of school administrators to store, distribute, organize, and ship booklets and answer documents. The online testing format has minimal computer system requirements and provides computer readiness downloads and updates. These value-added benefits to test administrators and support staff dramatically reduce the investment of time and energy when evaluating student achievement.
- Accelerated scoring and reporting provide simplified reports in minutes and hours.
- Assessments can be administered to a few students at a time (based on computer availability), while the rest of the students continue with their regular PACE work.
- Students take the test individually, at their own pace, possibly easing some anxiety resulting from taking the test in a group setting.
- Innovative and robust technology is beneficial for large and small schools.

Step 1 – Evaluate Computer Equipment Requirements
- A minimum of two computers at your school is necessary. One computer is needed for the proctor (the supervisor, monitor, or school administrator who will be supervising the students as they take the Stanford 10 Online assessment), and at least one additional computer will be needed for the student(s) to take the assessment.
- All the computers used for testing and proctoring will need to meet the minimum system requirements. Click here to review requirements.
- To further check your computers' specifications, run the System Check on each computer administering the test by going to the Pearson web page. You will see a green check when the system check is complete and the computer is ready to go. For step-by-step instructions, click here.
Stanford 10 testing is comprised of thirteen complete battery levels that measure academic achievement in the areas of reading, mathematics, language arts, science, and social science for students from Kindergarten through Level 12. These tests take from two to four mornings to administer, depending on the level being tested. If you have any questions, contact A.C.E. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Stanford 10 is based on chronological level and should be administered to students based on their actual chronological level at the time of testing. Use caution to ensure that the proper test is ordered and given to each student. Since there is a year of education difference between fall and spring testing, different tests are administered to the students in the beginning of the year compared to the end of the year in Levels 1-8.
|Order Dates for Test Materials||Deadline to Submit Tests to Pearson|
|Fall Testing||June 30–September 30||October 15|
|Spring Testing||November 30–March 30||May 15|
Below is a list of tests to be administered based on chronological level for both fall and spring testing.
