Following the enactment of the No Child Left Behind Act, students from all public and some private schools must take standardized tests in order to graduate. However, some institutions use these scores for their benefit to see how students improve on a yearly basis.

Students at St. Paul Lutheran School in Rochelle, Illinois, learned that they improved on their Stanford Achievement Test (SAT-10) scores for the third consecutive year, according to the Rochelle News Leader. In all subject areas, the private school's students scored above their grade average, while students were ranked high above the average in the majority of sections.

The SAT-10 is used on a national level in order to determine exactly how students match up against each other in subjects such as math and language arts. Although certain schools across the U.S. choose to use the SAT-10 in their curricula, it is typically used in Alabama and Arkansas. The test is available for students in each grade from kindergarten to 12th.
