Stanford 10 Online 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 Grade Levels 4-12. (Students below Grade 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.
