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.

This made our end of grade testing a really stress free experience. The practice tests was a great review. The test had an easy, clear format, and the premium scoring was fast and detailed. Untimed testing made for less pressure, however, with the format was so student friendly, we went from test start to celebration of success within 4 hours. I would recommend this testing service as a must have homeschool tool. Carrie B on 22nd Sep 2019
A great product--especially for homeschooling.
It is easy to administer and comprehensive. Are there more rigorous tests out there? Perhaps. But for the purpose of establishing a "baseline" and for the purpose of determining progress of your homeschooling student, this is a good product. Unknown on 6th Sep 2019
I like this a lot I was able to give her a practice test to see how she did and see what areas we need to work on. I recommend it to all my friends Unknown on 26th Jul 2019
We have been using this company for four years and we LOVE IT! The material is exactly what our children have learned and are in a easy format to understand. We pay for the scoring to be done by the professionals. We completely trust this company and will continue to use them. Pamela on 20th Jun 2019
This test was easy to follow and understand. My nine-year-old daughter had no issues taking it I will definitely be using this in the future Unknown on 11th Apr 2019
Used the practice test to see where my son stands academically. Heidi on 15th Mar 2019
My daughter always wants to take the practice CAT test first. It helps to show her what, if any, areas that she may need to study more before taking the CAT test itself!! Kristi on 7th Jun 2018
In my opinion... The spelling part of the test where they ask "Which one is spelled wrong?" I wish it would just say a word and have the student spell it. Because they might know how to spell of the others but one. Unknown on 5th Jun 2018
This practice CAT tests were easy to understand and administer. I like the option of timed and not timed being offered. It would be great a better indicator of where students are at academically if there were more questions, an example of the practice test being at least 50% of the CAT rather than only 25%. I believe this would give a more clearer picture of student's strengths and weaknesses in preparation for the tests. With that being said, I will probably use the practice tests in the future Trinetta Jackson on 22nd May 2018
This is perfect. I love how you guys have choices on timed or not timed. It really helps my daughter not to feel pressured. Kristi Turner on 21st May 2018
