California Achievement Test (Paper version)

  • California Achievement Test - Paper version

Product Description

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.

Ordering Instructions:

  • Enter the FIRST NAME and LAST NAME of the student to be tested in the spaces provided.
  • Select the GRADE ENTERING; not the student's current grade.
  • Indicate if you would like to add the RECOMMENDATION SERVICE or COMPOSITE SCORING service to your test (both services are explained below).
  • Please enter information only for one student at a time, then select the Add To Cart button.
  • If you wish to purchase testing services for additional students, or wish to make other purchases, select the Continue Shopping link after viewing your shopping cart.

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.

Composite Scoring:
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.

Recommendation Service:
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 – consists of a phone conversation (up to 30-minutes) with a curriculum specialist. With this service, the curriculum we recommend will be based on more than just the CAT scores; it will also take into account previous courses completed, student interests, learning style, future plans, and other information provided through the conversation.


Both services can take a few business days to complete and may delay the arrival of your test scores.

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.

  1. California Achievement Test 5 Star Review

  2. best test for the price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 06/05/2019

    As a home school parent I would recommend this test to just about anyone for a personal knowing of where your student/child is or for a school district assessment test. The test was received in less than a week. Customer service is very helpful and responds to emails very promptly. There is very short if any wait on the customer service call line and they handle all situations very well also. I was originally looking to get an Iowa State test but after buying this CAT test I will be using this for all testing needs. The test does a wonderful job combining 2-3 years of learning in a way that children can understand and teachers/parents can administer which is very helpful. I also buy this test at the beginning of the year that I plan to test at the end which helps a lot because I can use it as a guide line to where I need my students/children need to be and what we need to work on and what we are beyond prepared for with them knowing the material they can do great on the test. The breakdown of days and amount of time works very well and helps with test stress on students/children. My personal favorite part of the test is that it does not seem to be based on common core learning so it fits with what I am teaching my students/children

    This was our first year using the CAT. We were very happy with the entire experience! The ordering process was easy, the instructions were simple to follow, and best of all, my girls had a great time taking the tests. Thank you Christian Liberty!

    I'm so grateful to Christian Liberty for continuing to offer these to us as we are not fond of the Iowa Basics at all. Thank you, Deborah

  5. Good Price & Fast Service 5 Star Review

    We received our test materials in about a week. The instructions were easy to understand. We received the results back in about 1-1/2 weeks. The price was reasonable.

  6. Great Tool!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 04/12/2019

    My experience with CAT has been as a Director of Education for a nationwide tutoring chain which offered a very clear picture of a student's ability. Once we made the decision to homeschool, I felt that need to have a good resource to compare what we were doing with the national average but nothing excessive like today's testing. Since we live in area with almost zero oversight, the CAT was the test which popped into my brain. For the cost and time, this is a DEAL!! I already knew what to expect scoring wise but this has helped to see that comparative analysis and to help plan for the year's focus points.

    When in doubt, call Customer Service - they have always been prompt answering the phones and will provide answers without pushing. Many are homeschoolers as well so they understand where we are coming from as we work that balance.

  7. Great High Standard Test 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 03/19/2019

    Love the level of the test. Not watered down for the modern, weakened students. I highly recommend the 1970 CAT.
