CAT-4 test for Grade 7s: This week, our Grade 7 students will write the CAT-4 test. CAT-4 is a standardized test which measures achievement in the basic skills generally taught in schools across Canada. CAT is a set of tests on reading, mathematics, language, writing and spelling. The results of students tested with CAT are compared with those obtained from large, representative samples of students from across Canada. Their results can also be compared to curriculum expectations. CAT is the only Canadian owned and Canadian designed national test. In addition to its use by schools, part of CAT has been chosen by statistics Canada as the basis for tracking achievement over time.
