  1. Easy Convenient Testing in Your Home 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 09/03/2015

    I like the fact that this testing can be done in your home on your schedule. I like that they use the older national norms as a basis of comparison for your student's performance. The price is also excellent.

  2. Couldn't be any better! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 09/03/2015

    Today I purchased the test for my two sons. One is entering 2nd grade and the other 3rd grade. Minutes after I purchased it, an email was sent to me containing confirmation of test registration and instructions to start the test. We had just finished dinner and my sons were in the kitchen doing the dishes. I asked them if they wanted to take the test right after they were done with their chores and they both YES as if it was just another one of our homeschool sessions. They each took the test. We were all delighted by the impressive results. And this online CAT couldn't be any better. We are using this again next year.

  3. Easy and Quick Testing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/30/2015

    My sons are used to taking the paper format for the SAT or CAT but this year I Google searched and found this online test that is less than the mail in version that I've been using.

    My boys had plenty of time to finish each timed section with time left over to go back and review their answers before closing that section.

    You can take a break in between sections for water breaks or bathroom breaks, as much time as you need.

    We will be back next year to do this test again.

  4. Online CAT test 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/28/2015

    We enjoyed the CAT test online. Loved the ease of taking this test whenever we decided to. No books, no papers. Nothing to return. The test is very straight forward, easy to understand and follow. It keeps track of what you have finished and where you are. It also tells you your time with a counter, how many questions there are and a counter as you answer them. We also received our testing scores immediately, no waiting ! This is a test we would use again, due to the ease of it. A couple of the questions seemed to not have enough time.

  5. Great test! 5 Star Review

    Gave 3rd grade test to my 2nd grader and was pleased with all the tests!

  6. CAT testing the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/18/2015

    I would rather go through Christian Liberty so many others lose results or complain. I like that's it's online and immediate results that I have never had confused with others. Thank you. Love their testing. I hope someday they have a complete battery online too.

  7. Met my requirements for my state 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/17/2015

    Another homeschool mom recommended this site and the CAT test specifically to meet the requirement of testing for my state (Virginia).

    The test took about 2 to 2-1/2 hours and I had both kids take it at the same time. One is a rising 9th grader and the other a rising 5th grader. Other options available to me would have been far longer to test. This test is for math and language only and does not cover other subjects. So if you want to test science knowledge, this test will not do so.

    Once I showed them what to do and how to advance, they were on their own. It's a timed test, and there were a few sections my 10 year old just barely finished.

    The report I received was good in that it provided percentiles and stanines. Very helpful to know how they did at a glance.

    The only issue my kids both had was with a section of the language. The example asked if a sentence was in standard English or not. Upon review of the sample question, I found a word used in the sentence to be a non-hypenated word in reality, not as it was presented as hyphenated. This made me have some worry that that section of the test might have been misleading them since it was the worst section for both of them, while the other English sections were very well done. I now wonder if there are other issues with that section because if my kids knew a word was a compound word and not a hyphenated one as presented in the sample, I could see them easily getting other questions incorrect.

  8. Highly Recommend!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/08/2015

    We used this for our 11 year old son instead of the 2 day long testing offered. He did much better and I think it had a lot to do with the duration of the test. It was straight to the point he could see his progress and take short breaks between the sections. He is highly active and this worked really well for him. it took about 4 hours breaks included for him to finish it and we got his test scores back right away! No issues with loading etc. I would encourage anyone to try this test if their child struggles with the length of other tests. I missed the testing date so had to try this and I am so glad we did!

  9. Very good! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/04/2015

    Very convenient and easy to administer. On some sections, time seemed to be a little short and kids finished with only a few seconds left. We did have an issue with the page not loading during one section, but called customer service and they were very helpful and re-set that section right away. Overall, very good. I will use again. Love having the immediate results.

  10. thankful for immediate results and great customer support. 4 Star Review

    I really like receiving test results immediately. I put a sticky note over the count down timer. It helped the kids to relax while taking their tests.
