The current Stanford Achievement Test Series is considered the benchmark of excellence in standardized tests utilized by school districts in the United States. The test is used for assessing kindergarten through high school. The focus is on core knowledge that is comprehensive in scope. Each level of the test is broken into subtests or strands covering various subjects such as reading comprehension, math problem-solving, language, spelling, listening comprehension, science and social science. The test also give parents a better understanding of their child's achievement level and gives direction for home involvement.
