The CLT Difference

CLT promotes education that helps teachers form students who are curious, think deeply, and reason well. See why so many schools are switching to the CLT suite of assessments for their standardized testing needs.

  • Only lasts 2 hours and provides scores and analytics within days
  • Equips teachers with valuable feedback on student performance
  • Assesses both aptitude and achievement
  • Delivers more rigorous content than other standardized tests
  • Utilizes meaningful and primary sources for reading content 
  • Promotes critical and higher-level analysis

Straightforward Analytics to Equip Teachers

Our analytics are easy to interpret and straightforward while providing essential insight for teachers. CLT exams are intended for schools both as formative assessments in the fall and summative assessments in the spring. When used in the fall, feedback provided by CLT analytics allows faculty and administrators to identify areas of strength and weakness in individual students as well as their class as a whole. The spring is ideal for monitoring growth in students, as well as evaluating curriculum decisions for the following year.

“We believe that the CLT is the most reliable and valid test to provide that feedback.”

Stephanie R., Providence Academy

“It is often the case that our students comment on the correlation between what is being taught here at Bayshore and what is on the CLT. This alignment allows us, as teachers and administrators, to truly determine how well prepared our students are for their future.”

Ty H., Bayshore Christian School

“I insist that the object of all true education is not to make men carpenters, it is to make carpenters men.”
