How is the CCAT Test Scored?
Results of the CCAT 7 (Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test) 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.
A student’s score on the CCAT 7 is based only on how many questions are answered correctly. If a student answers questions incorrectly or skips a question entirely, it will not affect the score. The raw score is based on the total number of questions answered correctly out of 50.
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. If a student receives a score of 54, this score means that he or she performed as well or better than 54% of the students in the same age group, but worse than the remaining 46%.
Percentile Rank Range
98+ Very Superior
75-90 High Average
9-24 Low Average
below 2 Very Low
*Students who receive scores that fall between the 25th and 74th percentile indicate average performance.
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.
