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.

    I a homeschooling mom of four children and this is our second year using the CAT. The directions are simple and we ususally have the test done in two to days. The results come back quickly and are very helpful in letting know what my children's strengths and weaknesses are.

    It covers all that is needed and makes sure you know that your children are where they need to be or where they need a little work!

  6. CAT is in the house. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 04/13/2015

    That's right. CAT is in the house, at least here. That big furry creature arrived in the mail last month. Son, Benjamin, was too busy to open the package until recently. Then he completed the tests according to the Time Constraints and I mailed the test back. Ben's review of the test was: "While I don't normally like tests, this one made a believer out of me. It was concise, to the point and tested what I learned from the 6th Grade Curriculum. So, it was not difficult to read and understand the test. That is why I like the CAT in our house."

  7. CAT an Excellent tool for your homeschool students. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 04/11/2015

    My son found the 7th Grade CAT test easy to understand. He completed each portion of the test ahead of the allotted time. After the test was mailed in, he stated that it was really fun but said he was glad that he had studied his 6th Grade books during our daily classes. I might add that the Curriculum was excellent and the last placement recommendation from CLP was spot on. I highly recommend the products offered by CLP.

  8. 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
