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.

  1. Good Baseline Test

    Posted by Unknown 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.


  2. User Friendly!

    Posted by Helen Wilson 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.


  3. Cat Testing for my Home Schoolers

    Posted by Misty Johnson 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.


  4. Good Test

    Posted by Unknown on 08/05/2014

    I think that it is good basic test.


  5. Very descent testing content that posed a good challenge

    Posted by Kim on 07/29/2014

    Okay, 2 years ago was our first year homeschooling and after taking the Terra Nova Survey (test now discontinued) with our homeschool network my second grader said at the end of many days of testing at the dinner table, "Mom, I'm sorry. I don't want to be mean, but that test (Terra Nova) was dumb." And as a mom who could not preview the test before purchasing or administering, I have to say yes the Terra Nova was dumb...at a minimum the reading comprehension stories were pointless. The Christian Liberty CAT 1970, however, I glanced at ahead of time to return or administer and it satisfied my desire to improve our homeschool. My son was challenged and learned real and quality information through reading and applying his knowledge as well as test taking methods all in the process of taking the CL CAT 1970. While it was a challenge for him, his scores are acceptable and he feels good about the content of the test. He says his end of grade exam and his scores are respectable. He often finished right at the timer and some modules he refused to finish even before the timer went off, because he was mentally exhausted, but said he has done the best he can. Now that's a solid testing experience! Grading time was within reason especially when I submitted during expected high volume. Thank you Christian Liberty.


  6. great tests

    Posted by Michelle on 07/24/2014

    Great tests to fulfill our states homeschooling requirement for standardized testing.


  7. Visually hard on the eyes

    Posted by Unknown on 07/18/2014

    While I found the content to be good, the paper quality and the yellow ink made it quite difficult for my son. It would be nice if they could make the ink darker or just use a different color which would stand out better. We totally missed some of the print because it was so light. As homeschoolers, my kids didn't understand some of the questions. One was related to school, and showed a picture of a school... to my 6 year old, it looked like a building,not a school, so I know he got that one wrong. Im sure we will use CL again, despite the small issues I had.


  8. highly recommended!

    Posted by Adrian Li on 07/17/2014

    I searched high and low on the web for a simple and effective test we could administer at home and which satisfies the requirements of our state test. It's the first year we are testing our daughter so we opted for the paper test rather than the online one - the option to use paper instead of online is really helpful.
    This 1970 CAT test is an answer to prayer and we're most grateful to the Lord that Christian Liberty provides this unique offering to the homeschooling community - it's straightforward, easy to administer, aligned with biblical teaching, elegantly designed, proven, and effective in its measurement of achievement. The test arrived well packaged and protected and we were able to complete it on one Saturday. Instruction to administer the test is very clear. This test and Christian Liberty's service really have helped take one important load off my and my wife's shoulder in homeschooling and as a homeschooling parent I'm sure you can appreciate what that means.
    I prayed and will continue to pray that the Psalm 91 protection and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will be upon Christian Liberty and this test so that the test can continue to be available for many years to come. Please, if you are a user of this test, join me in praying for protection and provision for Christian Liberty and this test as you pray for ongoing protection and provision of your other homeschooling material/curriculum suppliers. Thank you and God bless, hope this review is useful to you.


  9. Number one choice.

    Posted by Unknown on 07/14/2014

    I really like this test. I find it very easy to understand and I feel as though most of it is common sense. Which there is also a down side. I am a average A&B student but I find this test easy. So I think anyone would be able to use it and understand it. I would recommend it and in fact I have to my friends.


  10. great product!

    Posted by Heather on 07/05/2014

    These exams are perfect for my children. Obtaining the test results is easy and fast. I will continue to use these exams in the future.
