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.

We did this practice test 2 weeks before her actual timed CAT test. She kept telling me how it was just like this practice test and she understood the format. Very glad this is offered. Mrs. R. on 24th Mar 2021
We previously ordered the full tests yet sometimes the boys felt overwhelmed, so the practice test helped prepare them better for a longer test. Leo on 10th Feb 2021
JUST WHAT MY CHILD NEEDED. Stephanie on 15th Dec 2020
We homeschool, live in Wisconsin, and I think it provides me direction for improvements and successes. Unknown on 21st Sep 2020
I wanted my new-to-third grader to have an idea of what the full assessment would look like so I purchased the not-timed practice test. I’m very pleased with the communication from AE and with how smoothly the test went. The practice has given my daughter confidence for the full test that will be administered later in the school year. ZsMom on 26th Jul 2020
It was very useful for me while preparing to take the CAT. It helped get acclimatized to the format of the questions and the way to answer them. Customer support was simply one of the best I’ve ever had, they replied to me within minutes of sending an email and were so very helpful. Debbie on 7th Jul 2020

This test is great. I ordered just the practice untimed and it took my daughter 2 hr to take it. Did have to feel rushed and did a great job on it. Amber petersen on 20th Jun 2020
My son was a little worried about taking the CAT this year. The practice test was a great way to give him the confidence needed to know he could do the test well Daniel B Gardner on 9th Jun 2020
