Standardized Tests of Magical Proficiency (often abbreviated S.T.O.M.P.s) are subject-specific exams taken by fifth year students at Salem Institute of Magic to help them pursue certain careers after graduation. A passing grade on a subject's E.M.U. is required in order to take the S.T.O.M.P. It is not required to enroll in the class in order to take the exams, though it is highly recommended. However, each professor has their own grade requirement for admission into their S.T.O.M.P. classes.
