Standardized tests are always administered offline under very controlled conditions, particularly with regard to timing and insuring that students receive no assistance. Standardized tests given online are not controlled. Standardized tests are given to a large cross section of children; if given online the testing is limited to a more specialized population. Because the correlation between offline and online standardized testing has never been established, the scoring and ranking cannot be accurately compared. Recognizing this problem, Kidtest.comSM has developed the Kidtest Benchmarked SequenceSM that are offered only online by Kidtest.comSM. These online Kidtest Benchmarked SequenceSM tests are called benchmarked tests to distinguish them from standardized tests.
