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.
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.
Christian Liberty has added the composite score option in response to some state and local school requirements.** This score is calculated from the raw scores of the individual sections of the California Achievement Test.
Families who request a composite score will receive (in addition to the individual results provided for the seven subject areas) composite score results in raw score, percentile, and stanine rank formats. A grade equivalent composite score is not available.
To include a composite score with your test results, simply check the “Composite Scoring” option.
** Christian Liberty does not require a composite score for enrollment into its homeschool academy.
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.
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.

I find the level four CAT to be very comprehensive and a good guideline to let me know if my child is ready to go into the 9th grade curriculm. I feel much more comfortable with affable my child based on his tress scores.

This was the first time we used the CAT. It was very easy to understand and administer. It was also the first time we used CLP. The products were delivered promptly and in good order. Thanks making our testing experience good.

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.

CLP has made giving and taking the CAT extremely easy for people.

Christian Liberty makes it easy to administer the CAT by labeling the answer sheet for you. This is a huge convenience when working with students in an alternative school.
