Practice ONLINE California Achievement Test: NOT TIMED

  • Product Description

    The California Achievement Test (CAT) is one of the most widely used of the student assessments for basic academic skills. The CAT provides educators, students and their parents with a measure of achievement and national comparison.

    The Academic Excellence online untimed practice California Achievement Tests are designed to allow parents and educators to easily administer a practice achievement test to their students requiring special accommodation, and to allow both educators and students to experience the online testing process. Each section constitutes a competency within the test and represents approximately 25% the length of the actual test. Tests are divided into multiple timed sections that can be easily administered by parents or educators. These tests can be taken over as many sessions as necessary based upon the schedule of the student and provide total flexibility over the course of a year to complete. Tests are immediately scored at time of completion and a count of the number of questions answered correctly is provided.

    When the complete California Achievement Test is taken, the student will also receive additional scores such as grade equivalence, percentile ranking, and stanine compared to national norms for students taking the traditional timed version of the test.  Student score reports indicate that the test was administered without the time limits associated with the traditional test.

    1. These are great.

      My kids usually have test anxiety. These tests have helped to ease that anxiety. It is a wonderful product. on 14th Dec 2016

    2. Practice test

      My 2 youngsters are not use to taking test - this was a great way of introduce them to the CAT before they were to take on the entire test. It was not intimidating, and the results were great. The results were sent to my email quickly for review. I would truly recommend the practice test 1st for any parent/teacher so that the student can have an idea of what to expect.

      Very pleased customer

    3. Pre-Test Helped a bunch!

      Daughter has text anxiety. After taking the pre-test she knew what the format of the testing was like and felt prepared to take test.

      I also originally ordered the wrong grade level and after an email the test was quickly changed to the right grade. (thanks so much!)

      Great test!

    4. Loved it!

      I tested my 2nd grader with the untimed test. I loved this test. It took roughly 2.5 hours with small breaks. It was layed out and divided nicely in categories. It was easy for my child to navigate by himself basically. on 18th Jun 2016

    5. Practice relieves anxiety.

      Practicing before he took the real test helped my low IQ son feel confident that he could do it. We went back over several areas and he did very well on the real test. Much better than I would have predicted. Thanks for this opportunity to test Him without time limits. on 17th Jun 2016

    7. Great preparation

      The practice test gave us an idea of what to expect, since I had not given my homeschoolers standardized tests before. I was glad that I was able to reach a representative, who explained to me that there will be some questions from higher levels, so I should not expect my students to be able to answer all of the questions correctly. I am looking forward to seeing the analyzed results that the complete test provides. on 31st May 2016

    8. great idea

      I really love this product. This pretest showed me just what my daughter needed extra help in before she took the full test. I would recommend this to all my friends. on 30th May 2016

    9. Great product

      Great array of questions, helpful in assisting me to know what my daughter and I need to work on. The testing format was great, simple to use and to the point. on 26th Apr 2016

    10. Untimed helped my ASD/Dyslexic son

      My son is autistic and severely dyslexic/dysgraphic, and really struggled last year with the timed test. (anxiety and on some sections he just froze and couldn't continue) With this untimed test, we were able to do a couple of sections at a relaxed pace, get up and do something else and come back to take more.

      There's just enough variety in the questions that it gave us a good idea of what he knew solidly and what we still needed to work on. Although, until I called and was asking questions about the practice test, I didn't know that the **4th-6th grade tests are the exact same**. My son is finishing up the 3rd grade (and therefor was taking the 4th grade test), and there was some math that I didn't realize he needed to know... turns out, he doesn't need to know it until the 6th grade. So, keep that in mind on the practice test... it only tells you how many correct out of how many questions they had (ie: 5/10)... not the score that compares them to other kids in their grade across the states. And, from the practice test, you can't tell which questions are for which grades. The customer service lady told me the actual untimed test is also for 4-6th graders.
