By now, there isn’t a U.S. household with school-age children that hasn’t experienced a standardized test, be it national assessments like the SAT-9, SAT, MAT-8, Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS), or TerraNova Assessment Series (CTBS/5 and CA STAR), or state tests like the FCAT (Florida), TAKS (Texas), and MCAS (Massachusetts). The California Achievement Test, CAT E/Survey (Grades ), is a nationally normed standardized test normed in that measures achievement in the areas of Reading, Language Arts, and Math. It meets most states’ requirements for an annual assessment for homeschool and private school use.

    Over the past 40 years, white-black and white-Hispanic achievement gaps have been declining, albeit unsteadily. Every few years, a sample of 9-, , and year-olds from around the United States are given tests in math and reading as part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). NAEP, sometimes called "The Nation’s Report Card," is designed to provide the public and.   High School Courses.
