Paper Test with Mailed Results

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.

    This test packet is perfect for my children. Each section is outlined nicely. The time sheet, which comes with it, is available for further instruction and training. Furthermore, I don't have to worry about who will grade the tests, because Christian Liberty does it all for you.

    I have used these tests for many years for my kids' standardized testing. Ordering them through Christian Liberty Press has been such a user friendly process. The tests have always arrived promptly and after I returned them, so have the results. This is a great product and I have recommended it to many people.

    Posted by Mrs. Elhenicky on 08/22/2013

    As a first year tester, this test helped lay any anxieties aside for 7 yr. old & myself. The test is very easy to administer, the staff is professional & thorough & shipping was quick. I gave 4 stars because 5 is "the best" & I've nothing else to compare it to; however we will be ordering again for next year.
