Stanford 10 (SAT10) test.
The Stanford 10 (SAT10) tests are widely used assessments that evaluate the academic skills of children from kindergarten through grade 12. These tests are often administered to determine a child’s readiness for promotion to a higher grade or to meet state and local testing requirements.
Introduced in 1950, the Stanford 10 is a paper-and-pencil test that measures academic
competency in various areas. It is available in six different forms, including the SAT10 Complete Battery, SAT10 Basic Battery, and SAT10 Survey. Each form uses multiple-choice and open-ended questions to assess skills in reading/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
The SAT10 is a standardized test, meaning that norms were established during the test’s design phase by administering it to a large representative sample of students. The test is typically administered in a group setting in the classroom and can take between one-and-a-half to over five hours to complete.
The test is scored by the company that publishes the SAT10 and the school receives individual test reports with scale scores and national percentiles.
The scale score represents a child's performance on the assessment, while the national percentile indicates the percentage of students in the norm group who scored lower than the child. The scoring may be based on the total number of correct answers or through item-pattern scoring that considers the difficulty level of correct responses and their interrelationships.
To familiarize students with the test format, teachers may conduct practice test sessions prior to the actual SAT10 testing. However, the test publisher recommends against pre-test coaching or test study programs, as the SAT10 aims to measure a child’s current educational achievement level.
