Test Prep

Stanford Practice Tests (Grades 3-12)

Stanford Practice Tests are available for grades 3–12.

stanford practice tests seton testingThese short practice tests (13-14 pages), published by the Pearson publisher, will give students an idea of what to expect on test day and increase their confidence in taking the test. Each of the practice test subject areas contain a few practice questions (about 2-5) designed to get students familiar with the kinds of questions (not actual questions) found on the test. The answers are in the Practice Test Directions for Administrating booklet.

Stanford Practice Tests can be administered by anyone.

Directions for Administrating are read like a script, and students mark their answers in bubbles. Practice Tests are untimed but can be completed in 1 hour. For the most effective use, the practice test should be administered one to two days before the test date.

These tests are especially recommended for students testing for the first time.

Practice tests are available in kits or as individual student practice tests.
