How the Catforms Program Works for Schools
We provide student response sheets and scoring services for the 1970 California Achievement Tests. The 1970 CAT is divided into five levels, which are listed on the back of our order form. Each level has a Form A and a Form B, which are usually alternated from year to year.
Levels 1 & 2 (grades 1-3) use a consumable student booklet, which is hand-scored by your teachers. The test information and raw scores are sent to us on the Raw Scores Form we enclose with your order. New! We now offer computer booklet scoring for Level 2 as well. (PDF).
New! Schools can now order online.
Student booklets and Examiner's Manuals are available for schools only from Christian Light Education (CLE). For a test order form, call CLE at 1-800-776-0478. Test order forms from CLE are not available online. We can also fax or email you a CLE test order form on request.
What Schools Receive

2. Achievement Test Analysis: one for each student in Levels 3-5. This graphically breaks each section of the test into small subcategories, showing specific strengths and weaknesses. View a sample Achievement Test Analysis.
3. The Summary of Stanine Scores shows the mean (average) stanine scores for each section of the test by grade. It also shows how scores compare with the previous five-year average and the change from last year for a given class.
