Frequently Asked Questions

Grades 2–12*

Christian Liberty Press offers the paper-version of the CAT tests for entering grades 2 through 12. This service includes all the necessary testing materials and instructions for administering them. After testing, return the materials to us for scoring. We will then mail you the final results and original test sheet. Scores are reported in grade equivalent, stanine, and percentile format.

It often takes one week to grade and return your student’s test results. If ordering the Curriculum Recommendation service, please allow an additional week for receipt of both the test results and recommendation.

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 testing fee will be deducted from your student’s tuition fee. However, if you enroll your student in a grade level using a different Achievement Testing level than the one he or she originally took, the test cost will not be deducted from your student’s tuition fee. Please use the CAT Level Chart below to determine if you are eligible for a refund when enrolling your child with CLASS.

The entire fee must accompany the order form. We do not accept partial payments and there are no discounts for multiple orders.
The paper-based CAT Testing Service fee is $25 per student. The Curriculum Recommendation Service fee is $18 per student.

  1. amazing for homeschoolers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 03/25/2015

    I use these tests for my teenagers and always get the recommendation service to track how well my kids are doing compared to other children as well as having something on hand as transcripts of some sort
    It also helps that someone else grades it so I'm not bias toward their answers

  2. cat review 5 Star Review

  3. CAT for second grade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 03/15/2015

    Love that I don't have to use a testing service!!

  4. Excellent product. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 03/07/2015

    Ordered the 7th Grade CAT test early to use when the school year is over. It will give me an indication of how well my son is doing. The curriculum kit I purchased for 6th grade was great. It greatly reduced my work load. My son also enjoys his school work much better. As far as the 7th Grade test goes, it appears to be very professional and covers the main subjects. Thanks for the excellent customer service and the great products offered by your organization.

  5. great test 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 02/24/2015

    this test is just great for my child to test how good her learning in going.

  6. Home school testing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 02/17/2015

    Everything I needed. Clear directions and ready to mail back when completed. The price is good too. Thank you for taking the steps to make this a no stress process.

  7. Easy to understand directions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 02/02/2015

    I thought it was an easy test to follow as were the directions. She was unable to do the division because our school evaluator told us not to worry about multiplication or division until 4th grade; we had just started multiplying, so she was able to do that part. I like that we were able to do the paper version, as well, since she would feel pressured to do it on the computer. Thanks so much!

  8. Good Baseline Test 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 09/22/2014

    While my home schooled students are learning in the mid-2010's, this is still a nice test to use for gaining a baseline of acquired knowledge. For what it is, I think the price is reasonable, and the test materials are easy to comprehend and therefore simple, though not necessarily easy to do. The only thing I would change if possible would be the time constraint. It is a favored test over others in that it restricts itself to reading comprehension, mathematics, and basic English language structure.

  9. User Friendly! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/27/2014

    Both my tests came in the mail quickly and so did the results. I will definitely use Christian Liberty again next year.

  10. Cat Testing for my Home Schoolers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 08/09/2014

    I have always been pleased with this testing. It does very well at challenging as well as pointing out your child/s strengthens and weak areas in academics.
