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. This version of the California Achievement Test covers strictly language skills and is intended for parents and educators who would like to focus their efforts on assessing a student's progress in this area. This is an excellent tool for measuring growth throughout the school year or addressing an opportunity for growth. If you would prefer the complete CAT, covering reading, language, and mathematics, please click here.
This version of the test is not timed for students needing special accommodations. 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.

Love the product, not timed is the best option for my child, to be able to take her time to finish. The results are emailed quickly right after, and it tells you the grade level your child is in. Jessica on 30th Jun 2022
It's very helpful to have the option of purchasing a Math only or Language only test.
The customer service representative at Academic Excellence suggested that I use one section of the test due to some specific difficulties that we were having. I'm so glad that I took her advice because it solved the problem! Thanks Academic Excellence! Unknown on 11th Aug 2020
