Recommendation Service Explanation:
The recommendation service that we offer allows for guidance in selecting curriculum for your student. Once the test is completed we will send the test scores to our homeschool curriculum department for review. From there, they will make curriculum recommendations for you based on your student's test scores. This can be an especially helpful tool if your student has above or below average scores on their test, and can assist in encouraging your student further.
All recommended books are available for purchase on our website. This process can take a few business days.
Composite Score Explanation:
As a general explanation, a composite score is a totaling of each of the Raw Scores from the individual sections of the test. You will also receive a percentile and stanine rank of this composite score. In addition, this service will total the individual raw scores by subject, and offer a total score, percentile, and stanine ranking for each. The subjects are Reading, Mathematics, Language, and Spelling.
A composite score is often required by some states and schools. For up to date information and requirements please check with your state, school district, or with the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA).
After testing is completed:
If you decide to enroll your student into the Christian Liberty Academy School System (CLASS) within six months after receiving the test results, the cost of the test will be deducted from your student’s tuition fee. However, if you enroll your student in a grade level using a different test than the one he or she originally took, the test cost will not be deducted from your student’s tuition fee.

This was an excellent way for our family to meet the testing requirements for our school system.

I did not read this test along with my son. There was only one section he complained about. The section in question was in the reading comp that includes using a diagram with letter segments. I think it unnecessary...it's confusing or written poorly. Speaking with other homeschool parents, they agreed.
However, I do appreciate the ability and ease of having my son complete this online. The results were immediate.

This is our second year using this test. I like the academic expectations of this older version as it challenges our kids. It is clearly presented and easy to use. You get quick score results and data. It presents a clear picture of a student's progress in the three core areas.

This is the third time I have done this test with my son. We had zero issues the first two times around and when we ran into an issue this time, I called, talked to someone right away, and she took care of it so easily. Thanks for making the process so seamless!

We used the CAT online for my children completing the 3rd and 5th grades this year. This was our first time with an online standardized test. It was easy to use and worked well. My favorite part was how quickly we could see the scores. What I didn't like about doing it on a computer versus on paper is when there was a longer passage to read for punctuation, spelling, or comprehension, time was wasted by having to constantly scroll down to see the question and back up to the passage, etc. I probably would prefer the paper version, but the instant results can't be beat!!

I use this test every year to test my son at the end of the year. It is very easy to administer and directions are clear and understandable. The only problem I have is it always seems during 1 of the tests something distracts ( no matter how well we get prepared) and the tests are timed and can not be paused. So usually 1 test does not score him right because he doesn't complete it. I will say, I don't know how that can be corrected. I highly recommend and will use again for future testing.

This is our 2nd time buying the CAT from Christian Liberty. Its a great product, smooth transaction and I have absolutely no complaints. We will keep using it as long as my children are home-schooled!

It was the end of the year before realizing we needed standard testing. This testing format fit our needs perfectly. Results were ready as soon as the tests were complete.

We have used this test for three years, the online version twice and the paper version once. All were great. This year we went with the online version again. Everything was great, results were quickly emailed to me.
The only complaint I have is I bought one for my son one week and the second for my daughter the following week. The second one I bought was $5 more. I didn't see anything about a sale or anything so I'm not sure what the price difference was about.
But the product itself was awesome and the price was acceptable.

This is an easy test to access, and I especially liked being able to have instant results. However, the time limits seemed short, and I think having to navigate the questions on the computer plus the newness of answering with the mouse lost time for my 2nd and 3rd graders. The spelling section of Level 2 focuses highly on sight words and hardly any phonetically-spelled words. The price is reasonable, and I think the CAT gives a fair assessment. I will let my kids decide next year whether to do the online version again, or if they'd rather have paper.
