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.
What is Composite Scoring?
** Christian Liberty does not require a composite score for enrollment into its homeschool academy.
If you are unsure which curriculum materials to choose based on the achievement test scores, Christian Liberty offers two different curriculum recommendation services to provide guidance in this area:
|Basic Service – provides a subject-by-subject listing of recommended curriculum materials (from those offered through Christian Liberty) based solely on the CAT scores.
Premium Service – currently unavailable
Both services can take a few business days to complete.
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.

Was great to have instant results! And very user friendly!
Great test and very easy to proctor!
I love how simple everything is. I also wanted to change the amount of reviews as it wasn't a nice number
Quick and easy to use. Results are available immediately.
I have been using the CAT for many years with my home educated children. It has fulfilled the state mandated testing requirements for us.
This is excellent it also gives grade level that the student is at.
We have been using this test for several years now and it is great to compare growth from year to year. The test seems to correlate very well with what I see in my children's academic studies throughout the school year and it helps keep us compliant with local homeschool laws. Thank you CLA!
Tests everything it needs to. My student felt certain sections were very easy and certain sections were challenging. Nice blend of easier and harder!
Super friendly and helpful customer service and the test worked smoothly. No glitches or problems!
