Standardized Test, Stanford Achievement Test, Arithmetic Examination A

Description
This paper and pencil arithmetic examination was part of the first (1922) edition of a set of tests developed at Stanford University by professor of psychology Lewis M. Terman, statistician and assistant professor of education Truman L. Kelley, and doctoral student Giles M. Ruch (Stanford PhD., 1922). World Book Company published the tests. Scores on the arithmetic examination are divided into two parts: computation of numerical examples, and word problems.
The Stanford Achievement Tests were designed to test the accomplishments of school children in grades two through eight. Editions of the examinations are still in print.
This example of the test is from the collection of clinical psychologist David Shakow.
