GRADE 4 Students – CANADIAN COGNITIVE ACHIEVEMENT TEST (CCAT-Version7) – APRIL 24– 27, 2018
The Waterloo Catholic District School Board is administering the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT-Version 7) to Grade 4 Students throughout the system. This test is a valuable tool for educators and parents, and assists us toward further identifying your child’s learning strengths and needs. The test will be spread over 3 days (three subtests ranging from 30 – 60 minutes each) and is composed of a verbal, non-verbal and quantitative battery. The purpose of the CCAT is to:
- Identify your child’s areas of strength and areas of need,
- Provide information about your child’s learning style(s),
- Provide direction to your child’s teacher on instructional methods, learning materials and the pace of instruction.
GRADE 7 Students – CAT-4 (CANADIAN ACHIEVEMENT TEST, 4th Edition)

The CAT-4 test 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.
