This downloadable and printable CAT Prep Pack from AE is intended to provide educators additional resources which will aid in preparing students for the California Achievement Test (CAT). Prep Packs include student worksheets which correspond to each section of the CAT and allow students an opportunity to brush up on the type and scope of questions which they will encounter on the test. Answer keys are provided with each Prep Pack to allow the educator to evaluate the completed worksheets and identify opportunities for focus prior to testing.
In addition to the worksheets and answer keys, each Prep Pack contains a testing guide which outlines the sections of the test and provides details concerning the scope of each test unit. This information will allow educators to review with students concepts that will be encountered during the test. Other information within this guide describes the specifics of how the CAT is evaluated and tips for maximizing effectiveness of the testing process. The testing guide is intended to be an additional tool available to educators for providing students the best possible testing experience.
Prep Packs are digital downloads in PDF format which can be printed after purchase. This Prep Pack includes:
·Worksheets: 12 pages
·Answer Key: 12 pages
·Testing Guide: 6 pages
CAT Prep Pack grade levels are designed to correspond with the grade level definitions of the CAT. If you are purchasing a Prep Pack for a student that will be taking the 8th grade CAT, the 8th grade Prep Pack is appropriate. As with our California Achievement Tests, when ordering a test for end-of-grade testing, you should order the test indicating the grade level that your student will next be entering. For example, a student finishing 5th grade should order the test for 6th grade, indicating that he/she is entering 6th grade. Please rest assured that this will not cause students to be tested on material beyond what is appropriate, but will insure proper norming when test scores are evaluated.

Absolutely love the fact that it’s easy to read! My son requested this after last year’s success! It helps him see what needs to work on little extra more. GamerMomma on 28th Jan 2023
A lot of kids are not the best test takers! This gives them a heads up and a shoulder above, and can help them to not be as nervous when it comes time to take the actual test, because they'll know what to expect. It helps the parent/teacher to see what they really need to focus on in their last reviews of the year's content. koosamonkey on 15th May 2019

I liked being able to order worksheets that would help my child prepare. The only issue I had with the worksheets were the instructions. It was a little confusing because the instructions for the test we’re included as part of the guide but the instructions for the worksheets were not. It took me a little bit to figure out that the testing time and number of problems were for the actual test not the worksheets. I also think offering a second set of worksheets would be great especially for families like mine who want additional preparation material. Unknown on 2nd Jul 2018
