Stanford Open-Ended Assessments

The Stanford Open-Ended Assessments were developed to meet increasing demands for innovative alternative forms of student testing. They can be used either by themselves or in conjunction with the multiple-choice component of SAT 10 to provide a more complete picture of student performance.

The Stanford Open-Ended Assessments test student skills in reading, mathematics, and social sciences, for kindergarten–grade 12. The open-ended format allows for measurement of important educational objectives, generally not measurable on a multiple-choice assessment.
