How is the CCAT Test Scored?

Results of the CCAT™7 contain a composite score, combining verbal, quantitative and non-verbal abilities. This score indicates the scope and strength of a student’s overall cognitive ability for learning.

Scores are a composite of all three of the CCAT 7 batteries. Each student receives a score report with three different scores. The Age Percentile Rank (APR) ranks a student with others in his or her age group. The Grade Percentile Rank (GPR) ranks a student within his or her grade. The Stanine (S) score, relays a specific range of scores that have predetermined ranks-—9 being very high, 1 being very low, and 4–6 being average.

The CCAT 7 is “norm-referenced,” so it ranks students, comparing the performance of each child to other same age/grade children (from a norm group) who took the same test under similar conditions.

What happens next ? I have seen the results for my daughter and she has done really well? She is only in Grade 4 now, but I really want to know what next?

Lauren

What is the percentage for average and above?

Jake

Rajesh when your daughter is in Grade 5, she might be qualified for the Gifted and Talented program. If she is she will have to do another test along with whoever else qualified. (If anyone else did) If she qualifies, she gets to go to a different school to learn stuff that isn’t taught in a normal Grade 5 class.

If I have the raw scores… is there somewhere I can calculate the percentile scores (APR)?

Thanks!

Please reach out to your school district to learn more about appeals, re-testing, and options for your child. Each School District has unique guidelines on how to handle re-test or appeals for entry into their gifted program. We do wish you luck and apologize as we just are unable to track the rules for each school district.
All the best,

Hi,

What’s required to be accepted into the gifted learning program. Results of CCAT 7 for Composite (VQN) are:

Standard Age Score: 135
Age Stanine 9
Age percentile rank 99

Does this not qualify acceptance? The one thing the resulting documentation doesn’t do well is break down the numbers. Is a certain percentage required in each ability? If so it would be great if they identified that in the result documentation.

Chris,
These are very nice scores, but the cutoff can vary from School District to School District. I would recommend reaching out to your School, but based on our experience, these are qualifying scores for most Gifted Programs.
Thank you,
Perry
