Tests administered in the paper/pencil format are scored by faculty at your institution
in scoring sessions. This scoring process allows for faculty to be directly exposed
to students' strengths and weaknesses related to critical thinking, creative thinking,
real-world problem solving, and communication.
Tests administered in the online format are scored using machine learning algorithms
specifically formulated for each question. A sample of student responses from the
online administration are provided for institutions to run a modified scoring session.
This condensed scoring session allows faculty to understand the CAT and associated
rubric but spend less time scoring all student tests.
Students who are enrolled in online courses and/or off-campus students can now take
the CAT through our connection with Examity.com. Examity is an online proctoring service that helps ensure the integrity of online
testing. Click HERE for more information about Examity and how online proctoring could work for you.
