Product Description

Paper California Achievement Test with mailed 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 testing materials by mail. This service includes all the necessary materials and instructions for administering the test. After testing, please return the materials to us for scoring (an envelope is included, but you may use any mailing method you would prefer). After scoring the test, we will then mail the final results and original test sheet to you.

Ordering Instructions:

  • Enter the FIRST NAME and LAST NAME of the student to be tested in the spaces provided.
  • Select the GRADE ENTERING; not the student's current grade.
  • Indicate if you would like to add the RECOMMENDATION SERVICE or COMPOSITE SCORING service to your test (both services are explained below).

  • If you wish to purchase testing services for additional students, or wish to make other purchases, select the Continue Shopping link after viewing your shopping cart.

It can take roughly 1 week to grade the test and mail the results after receiving your test(s). If ordering the Recommendation Service or Composite Scoring service, please allow up to an additional week for the results and service information to be mailed.

*Please note that the California Achievement Test has a 1 year expiration date.

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.

  7. Easy to administer and affordable 5 Star Review

    We choose to use the 1970 CAT due to the higher standards and keeping with the basics of language arts and math. It is very easy to understand. There are step by step instructions including exactly what to say to your child while administering the test. Liberty Press always takes the time to answer my questions.
