OLSAT | BJU Press Testing & Evaluation

Order Practice Tests

Available year-round for grades 2–12, the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test® (OLSAT) is offered only in combination with a Stanford Achievement Test. It provides separate scores for both verbal and nonverbal reasoning/learning abilities.

Combining the Stanford achievement tests and the OLSAT learning ability test will help you develop reasonable expectations for your student’s progress, based on his or her abilities. Once you are able to discern whether your student is reaching his or her academic potential, you can understand how to tailor your teaching to your student’s learning style.

It is recommended to take the OLSAT every two or three years in conjunction with the Stanford Achievement Tests.
