ACAT Online
ACAT Online can be used alone or in combination with ACAT pencil and paper.
Scores can be sent to a departmental representative by e-mail within minutes.
ACAT Online can be used to obtain precise comparative data for multi-sited programs.
ACAT Online must be administered in a proctored setting. This includes verifying examinees' identity using a photo ID and insuring students do not engage in behaviors damaging to the integrity of the process. For unsupervised administration, use the ACAT-N.
If your department is not already using the ACAT, you will need to select the areas to appear on your test. If you are already using the paper ACAT, the ACAT Online will contain the same areas unless you tell us otherwise.
Place your order online or download an order form and send it by mail or fax. You must provide a purchase order, purchase card number, or prepay your order for it to be processed.
Your authentication codes will be sent to you by e-mail approximately 2 weeks before your first planned administration. You will also receive administration instructions and other paperwork.
Authentication codes do not expire, can be used at any time, and will be replaced free of charge if misplaced.
Using the form included with your order or downloaded from our site, select whether or not students will receive their scores and other feedback immediately after they complete the test. If the scores are displayed, a print button is available for students to make a copy of their scores.
