Scholastic Testing Service, Inc. | Bensenville, Illinois • Earth City, Missouri | 1.800.642.6787
Who May Order • Tests are instruments, which must be used with professional care. Therefore, their sale is restricted. Some of the principles of test sales are as follows:
When to Order • While STS does not impose “testing window” practices, we recommend that orders be placed at least four weeks in advance of testing. Expedited orders can incur extra shipping charges.
What to Order • Most STS test booklets and answer sheets are sold in packages (see catalog listings for quantities). The minimum order for these booklets and answer sheets is one package.
How to Order
*The High School Placement Test (HSPT) and the Educational Series (EDSeries) assessments are not available for purchase online. Please contact us at 1.800.642.6787 for pricing and ordering information for HSPT and EDSeries.

Scoring and Licensing Policy
The established policy of Scholastic Testing Service, Inc. is to issue licenses, under our copyright, proprietary, and intellectual property rights, to allow the copying, reproduction, transcription, recording, storage, retrieval, and transmission of STS published, proprietary, copyrighted material for the purposes of scoring and reporting by machine and conducting research. STS proprietary material includes, but is not limited to items, instruments, norms, answers, answer sheets, item-objective relations, reporting concepts and formats, tables, and statistical algorithms.
In conjunction with our responsibilities as a publisher serving the educational community, we strictly comply with those standards promulgated by the American Psychological Association for the development and norming of our standardized tests. We also have maintained the highest possible standards of research and quality control for our instruments. Our avowed objective is continued adherence to these standards in order to discharge our responsibilities to educational professionals. The reason for this licensing policy is to ensure that STS will be able to continue to develop high-quality test instruments. The royalty charges to be paid for the licensing privilege help defray the significant costs involved in new test development.
At present, licensing requirements do not apply to not-for-profit public elementary and secondary schools scoring and reporting their own cases. However, this policy of granting royalty-free, nontransferable licenses to not-for-profit public elementary and secondary schools is under continual review, and we retain the right to revoke it at any time without prior written notice.
All other entities including colleges and universities that score or report STS instruments to others or who wish to conduct research utilizing STS proprietary materials are required to request license issuance in writing and execute licenses bearing reasonable royalty charges or permissions fees. License issuance requests are not automatically granted, but rather considered in light of individual circumstance.
Prices in the catalog are effective August 1, 2020 through July 31, 2021 and are subject to further change without notice. Orders for purchase of materials are processed immediately and invoiced at current catalog prices. All scoring and data processing services are invoiced upon completion of service according to current effective catalog prices, regardless of date of receipt of order.
All STS tests and related products are copyrighted. They are not to be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, including photocopy, recording, or any information storage and retrieval system, without prior permission in writing from the publisher. The reproduction of any part of the tests in any way, whether the reproductions are sold or furnished free for use, is a violation of Copyright Law of the United States and related laws contained in Title 17 of the United States Code.
