3  The Stanford Achievement Test Series, the most recent version of which is usually referred to simply as the "Stanford 10", is a set of standardized achievement tests used by school in the United States and in American schools abroad for assessing children from kindergarten through high school. First published in 1926, the test is now in its tenth version. Although in many states it is being replaced by state- created tests (mandated by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001), it is not equivalent to most of these tests, in that the Stanford series are more comprehensive in scope than the newer assessments. The test is available in 13 levels that roughly correspond to the year in school. Each level of the test is broken into subtests or strands covering various subjects such as reading comprehension, mathematics problem-solving, language, spelling, listening comprehension, science, and social science.

4  The Stanford Achievement Test Series is used to measure academic knowledge of elementary and secondary school students. The reports include narrative summaries, process and cluster summaries, and graphic displays to clarify the student's performance and guide planning and analysis. Administrators obtain critical data to document and monitor the progress of all children and to disaggregate results according to federal mandates. Teachers receive specific information to support instructional planning for individual students and the class as well as to improve their teaching. Parents better understand their child's achievement level and get direction for home involvement

5  Definitions  Raw Score – a raw score is the number of questions answered correctly for a subtest or total.  Grade Equivalent – A grade equivalent is a score that represents the average performance of students tested in a given month of the school year. The number to the left of the decimal point refers to the grade for which the score is typical, and the numeral to the right to the decimal point represents one tenth of the school year, or one school month. (2.5)  Normal Curve Equivalents – NCE is a standard score with a known mean and standard deviation, such that of 1, 50 and 99 corresponds to the % of 1, 50 and 99.  Achievement/Ability comparison – AAC is available when an achievement test and an ability test are administered concurrently. The AAC describes a student’s performance on each subtest and total score of the achievement test in comparison to other students earning the same grade stanine on the ability test.

6  Definitions  Norm-referenced tests (or NRTs) compare an examinee’s performance to that of other examinees. Standardized examinations such as the SAT are norm-referenced tests. The goal is to rank the set of examinees so that decisions about their opportunity for success (e.g. college entrance) can be made.  Stanine (S) – Standard score with a mean of 5 and a standard deviation of 2. Stanines of 1, 2, 3 are below average; 4, 5, 6 are average; and 7, 8, 9 are above average.
