The Stanford Tests for Private Schools

BJU Press is now offering Stanford 10 paper/pencil with Pearson's scoring services. Please read Test Details carefully to see how this will affect your testing experience before ordering.

Includes a Lexile Measure for Grades 1–12. Stanford 10/OLSAT® 8 tests are available for private schools in most areas (not offered to public schools). Neither of these tests should be taken more than once in a 3-month period, and other restrictions may apply.

Before proceeding, please be aware that results turnaround is now 6–8 weeks after BJU Press receives materials and that BJU Press cannot control delays.

Features of the Stanford 10 Achievement Test

  • Available year-round for Grades K–12, the Stanford 10 is nationally standardized and meets most state requirements. (Check state requirements before ordering.) The achievement test is untimed. It assesses student achievement in academic subject areas.
  • Shows prospective students and their families your school’s academic rigor.
  • The approximate testing time is three to six hours, depending on the grade.

Areas tested

  • Reading, mathematics, language, spelling, listening (varies by grade)
  • Environment or science and social studies (varies by grade)

Uses and restrictions

  • Helps to measure both achievement and yearly growth.
  • Schools must enter student information before materials can ship. This will create a Student ID for each student. Testing & Evaluation will send a list of these IDs with materials, and schools will need to bubble the Student ID on each student's answer document.
  • In order to have IDs for all students, if your school will be ordering scoring-only for any students, you will need to order this when ordering materials.
  • BJU Press is not offering special reports (e.g., Record Labels, reports with excluded students, Aggregate Reports for scholarships) for the Stanford 10 at this time, nor does BJU Press store student tests.

Features of the Otis-Lennon School Abilities Test®

The OLSAT® is often used with the Stanford 10. When the combination tests are given, the results will allow the parent/teacher to compare the student's ability with his actual school achievement.

  • It assesses developed reasoning and problem-solving abilities important for learning.
  • Combination testing (recommended every 2–3 years) allows comparisons between students' ability and their actual achievement.
  • The test is timed and usually takes one hour.

Areas tested

  • Verbal comprehension and verbal reasoning
  • Figural reasoning and quantitative reasoning

Uses and restrictions

  • Available for grade K5–12
  • Helps to measure abilities/aptitude
  • May help identify gifted students

Already have inventory?

If you have existing inventory and/or plan to reuse materials for 2 or more years, use the Purchase option for the best pricing. Once you have your own materials, next year you’ll only need minimal materials, such as answer documents or consumable booklets (includes scoring)—reducing your cost per student.

Note: If you have 2-part write-in booklets (grade K5–3) remaining, these can no longer be scored. Remaining answer documents can be scored, if the school calls 800.845.5731 to arrange this service.

High student/teacher ratio?

The higher your student/teacher ratio, the more you’ll save with the Purchase option.

Small class size?

Simplify by grouping several grades and using the Service Package option. Rather than accumulating inventory that may not match your future needs, you’ll be able to order exactly the right amount each year.

Test Administrator Qualifications

It is critical that the publisher’s guidelines for administering the tests be followed precisely. Please review the test administrator qualifications.
