This test is very well formatted. The directions were easy to understand which helped my 6th grade son feel comfortable.
It would be good if there is a little more explanation regarding what you are able to do during the test, such as go back to problems if you get stuck. Since the test is timed, it will give the students a little more relief to know that they can answer everything they know first and then go back for the ones they had trouble with.
The fact that we got the results so soon after he took the test was very convenient since we needed test scores to apply at a private school.

It kept our attention ! He had to think about the questions and answer carefully. The material was diversified and fair.

It's easy to understand and go through and my kids and I are able to see the results right away. It helped give me an understanding of how my kids were doing and I ended up having one of my kids redo his math test within 6 months. (If you do that, make sure you contact support so they can reset it for you. Otherwise, it may not grant you access to retake the same grade level with that student. I called and they helped out right away and got us access immediately). My son retook the test and we've seen his improvement. The test has proven to be a great tool to help gauge where my kids are at.

We have used the paper CAT test for several years, but gave the On-Line version a shot this year. The reason we chose to do it is because the kids are teens now and will be taking college entrance and CLEP exams On-Line and we wanted to go ahead and get them used to it.
We have not done any on-line classes before, so this was a new experience all the way around.
WIth that being said, it was a positive experience, overall. We ran into a couple of glitches that I think could have been avoided and that we will know how to handle next time.
1. There is a pause button. If your child has to go to the bathroom in the middle of a timed test, pause the test and it will resume where you left off.
2. Have paper and pencil handy for every test. Whether spelling or math, sometimes it just helps to write something out.
3. Be prepared to sit with your student at least for the first few sections to help get him acclimated. Sometimes the NEXT button wasn't visible and had to be scrolled down to; sometimes it looked like there were only two possible answers, but when he scrolled down a bit there were 5.
We will do the On-line test again next year. We loved having the immediate scores!

The trick was really figuring out how the test was going to happen before starting. We learned on the first section of nine sections. We learned that you can go back before the time is up and correct previous answers in that section. We learned that there is a timer on the bottom left to watch, because we created a google timer in a separate window for the first section. The sample questions are very easy, compared to the test questions. After that, it was make sure you look at the test answers, to see what format or units the answer needs to be. We will be using it again. It was also three times harder than FCAT timewise.

The process was fast & easy. Really liked this option but hated being timed. Is that really neccesary? Its not a good indicator of what they know. Thanks:)

I've used the written version of this test for many years with 5 of my 7 children. I've also organized groups to take the test using that version. I liked it very much. These last 2 years I used the online version and it was even better because the tests time themselves, It seems easier for the kids to follow since the questions are presented one at a time so there's no mix up. (The paper version bubble sheets can mix up the kids if they skip one and forget, then all the answers are wrong down the whole line.)
This test is so self explanatory all you have to do is read the beginning directions with the child and make sure they understand how to select their answers, then just be around keeping an eye on them, but they can do them themselves. You don't have to be a certified teacher.
Then, when it's all completed, you get the results immediately. The paper test had to be done, then mailed back for grading. Even though that was pretty quick turn around, it is so nice to not have to wait.
When we had a computer glitch in the middle of a test they were quick to reset it for us so we could start over.
The only down side is that this test doesn't cover Social Studies and Science but that has not stopped me from using it. It costs less than all other tests and helps me to verify the areas we need to work more closely with my kids.

3 kids tested, grades 6, 8 & 9, intuitive to use, quick results, very pleased with our experience. Reading Vocabulary results did not come into our email, but customer service helped find it online and told me where I could see the complete results and print them for my records. So glad to have the convenience of doing this at home.

My daughter took this test at the end of 9th grade. It was straight forward and easy to use. We appreciated the convenience of receiving instant results. I had to call for some help with resetting one of the sections, and the staff at Christian Liberty were very attentive and helpful. Overall and excellent experience.
