Testing & Evaluation

Stanford 10

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 and in full color.

Choosing the Right Test Grade

If you will be testing and postmarking tests for return on or before July 31, test for the grade your student has finished or will finish soon.

August 1 or later, test for the grade your child just started or will be starting.

Paper/Pencil Tests

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. Contact BJU Press at to get your account set up to administer tests.

Results Timeline: Approximately 6–8 weeks after materials arrive back at BJU Press. Please be aware that third-party scoring may cause delays beyond BJU Press’s control. Rush processing for faster results is not available with Stanford paper/pencil due to the nature of out-of-house scoring.
