Test Comparison Chart

Seton offers year-round testing & scoring services. If you are new to testing with Seton, you may want to take a look at our overview of the testing process.

Standardized Tests

Standardized tests are meant to show proof of progress. They are not pass/fail tests. The test results show how your student compares nationally to other students in the same grade level who took the same test at the same time of year (Fall, Midyear, or Spring) when the test was normed.
