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.
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 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.

The test is good to know what grade level the student is on
The instructions were very simple and straightforward. Delivery was fast.
First year homeschooling and you and your test booklet has made it so much easier on us. Thank you
CAT paper tests
This is our second year using this test, even though it was not required due to COVID. I like having the paper booklet and especially for my youngest, in 3rd this year, to be able to write in the book. Ive yet to find errors, the type size is just perfect, and the directions are always clear. We should probably move to the computer, but there's still something about pencil and paper! Thank you for continuing to offer this option!
Delivery a bit slow, but product in excellent shape
Due to the COVID situation mail is running very slow, but I am glad to have received my exams before the start of school.
Good Test, great standards.
It's a clear, well round test
Easy to use
CAT test was easy to use and administer. Christian Liberty made it easy to use and step by step instruction was helpful.
