Frequently Asked Questions
Can my school offer CLT exams?
CLT’s entire suite of tests can be offered to your students. If your school would like to use one of these tests as an internal metric to track growth, offer it to your students for scholarships, or as a college entrance exam, we would love to work with you to find the solution that best fits your situation. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our suite of tests can be offered in the following formats:
- Online, at your school, and proctored internally
- Online, at home, and proctored by a parent*
Please visit the CLT, CLT10, and CLT8 pages to see our upcoming test dates for each test.
*Parent-proctoring is only available for the CLT8 and CLT10.
Can students take the test on their own devices, or do testing sites provide computers?
For the at-home CLT8 and CLT10, students will use their own laptop or tablet.
For the remotely-proctored CLT exam, students will furnish their own computer. Please note that tablets are not currently supported for the CLT remotely-proctored test.
For in-school tests, please check with your school.
Who proctors the CLT?
For in-school tests, the testing site will provide a proctor for the exam. Proctors are vetted and approved by CLT and the testing site.
The CLT10 and CLT8 may be taken at home with a parent or another responsible adult as the proctor.
The remotely proctored CLT is proctored through a combination of technology and video/screen recording. Students do not need an adult proctor for the remotely proctored CLT because they must remain alone for the duration of the exam.
“The CLT contains not only primary sources that are worth reading, but also encourages teachers to keep teaching the way they’re teaching.”
