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.

The kids did not mind taking the practice test. It was easy to setup for them and explain. Quick results. Unknown on 16th May 2017
I had a very nervous homeschooler testing for the first time and this practice test gave her so much confidence and also gave us some good feedback to see what things she might need to review or learn for the actual test! Jen Moore on 8th May 2017
I bought the untimed practice version for my 3rd and 5th grader to see if it would be a good test for us this year. It was easy for them to take and they koved doing this on the computer. While it is good an accurate coverage of the mterial they did not feel overwhelmed. I look forward to finishing our year with the actual tests soon. Julie on 2nd May 2017
I bought these for my sons and I found myself actually sitting down and doing some of the exercises lol...took me back some years lol. I think it's great practice for my sons. Very well compiled and detailed. Mrs Ali on 7th Apr 2017
I have used the CAT from Academic Excellence for three years. We love the untimed, online version. It works great for my anxious child on the Autism Spectrum. With the practice tests being only $5 I order them at the first of the year and used them a couple times just to see if we are progressing or have any weak areas that need review. And since I do the full test twice a year (at the end of the year current grade & beginning of the year future grade) then I can compare what she has learned to what she will need to learn. It just works out great for us in our homeschool journey. If you haven't tried this test or Academic Excellence you NEED to jump right in. You will get your child's answers, scores and all you need to make your school year great - within hours! Jennifer Nichols on 11th Feb 2017
We don't follow a curriculum in our homeschooling, but do a lot of interest-led learning. Since we live in a state that requires testing, it's nice to have a mid-year test that'll show us how our kiddos are progressing for the year and see if there are any gaps in what they're learning. This practice test is short and pretty quick to get through, and was helpful for our 4th grader to see what he needs to be working on. The cost is wonderful, also. Easy to pick up, take the test, and almost instant grading/feedback. Highly recommend it. Amber on 19th Jan 2017
Excellent product to provide the student with an opportunity to practice for the real deal. Quick and to the point. Unknown on 15th Dec 2016
My kids usually have test anxiety. These tests have helped to ease that anxiety. It is a wonderful product. Unknown on 14th Dec 2016
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 Unknown on 22nd Jul 2016
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! Justine on 20th Jun 2016
