Online California Achievement Test with near-instant, emailed results. This is a timed test.
This test is for students entering grades 2 through 12. Scores reported will offer a grade equivalent score, but also percentile and stanine rankings for each of the individual test sections. You will receive your test results by email shortly after the test is completed.
You will receive an email with details about registering to take the test shortly after completing your order. In most cases we are able to send the information within an hour but there may be times where it takes longer - up to 1 business day.
There is no refund for any unused online achievement or placement testing service.
We ask that you please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address book to ensure you receive this email. If you don't see it please check your spam or junk email folder. If you experience any trouble please contact us at email@example.com. We would also recommend viewing our recommended system requirements below for administering the test on your computer.
*Please note that the California Achievement Test has a 1 year expiration date.
Christian Liberty has added the composite score option in response to some state and local school requirements.** This score is calculated from the raw scores of the individual sections of the California Achievement Test.
Families who request a composite score will receive (in addition to the individual results provided for the seven subject areas) composite score results in raw score, percentile, and stanine rank formats. A grade equivalent composite score is not available.
To include a composite score with your test results, simply check the “Composite Scoring” option.
** Christian Liberty does not require a composite score for enrollment into its homeschool academy.
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.
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.

I was impressed by the convenience of using the online CAT test for both of my children
My fifth grade flew through it and had no trouble understanding the instructions or navigating through the test.
My second graderound just turned 7 when she took this test and had almost no experience in the computer so I was constantly having to reopen the screen for her when she accidentally left the page, or checking the volume
She probably would've done better with the paper version.

We have used Christian Liberty several times now and have not been disappointed. We homeschool but still must test every other year and this one has been great for us.

This was our first time using an online testing service. The main reason we chose this program was the ability to test in a short amount of time for registration deadlines. The ease of the test taking process (well explained instructions, ease of using a computer vs paper test, and the ability to focus on one test question at a time vs seeing the entire section at once) really helped keep the test anxiety to a minimum! Since I was not able to see the test questions, I cannot say with 100% accuracy this test was completely on grade level, but my children scored very well (above average / well above average) and said they felt they were adequately prepared based on their grade level curriculum. Receiving the results immediately was also a huge plus as well! We will definitely use the Christian Liberty Press testing service again.

This testing is an excellent source for placement of any child's level. It provides a thorough breakdown of each category to aid in discerning areas of challenge and achievement. Thanks for having this available to us.

We used the online CAT test this year to do year end testing. This is our third time I believe, and I think the product is much improved. We had no glitches even though we used my iPad. Everything worked great and the results were very quick. Thanks.

The online CAT is very convenient for homeschoolers. My only issue is that if internet is moving slow, there is no way to adjust grades for that. The tests timed out before my students could finish. That being said, the test is accurate and easy to give to the students. I will purchase these again.

It was great to order the test, get it within minutes, administer when it worked for us, and receive almost immediate results when we were finished. I would definitely use it again.
