Stanford Achievement Test | Tenth Edition Abbreviated Battery

SAT10 Abbreviated
For more than a century, the SAT10 provides a valid and reliable measure of academic achievement toward state and national standards for students grades K-12. The SAT10 Abbreviated includes all the subtests of the SAT10 with the exception of Listening and Thinking Skills, enabling educators and administrators to make important instructional decisions for each student in less time. The SAT10 Abbreviated is an untimed, multiple-choice assessment that has national norms. Clear reports show academic strengths in addition to the skills in need of more support. Parents also see home-based activities in each content area. The SAT10 is the most current version of the SAT. See our Guidance on using this assessment remotely.
