Assessments for Grades 3-6

Coming Soon: CLT3-6


CLT is thrilled to announce the launch of CLT3, 4, 5, and 6. These summative, end-of-year assessments for young learners in grades 3-6 will meet a great need for schools and teachers by reflecting the meaningful education they provide, whether classical, private, or traditional.

Now Available: CLT3 Sample Test


We've developed a sample test for CLT3 to provide insight into the types of questions and reading passages that will appear on the exam. The format and layout of CLT4, 5, and 6 will reflect that of CLT3.

What Will CLT3-6 Look Like?


CLT3-6 will serve as meaningful summative assessments that provide an opportunity for
students to think more deeply about great ideas inspired by literature, scholars,
artists, scientists, and mathematicians. Our test content will be directly connected to the classroom and
will encourage curiosity about what is true, good, and beautiful.

CLT's Assessments for Grades 3-6 each contain two Verbal Reasoning Sections and two Quantitative
Reasoning sections. Each section is untimed, but it is expected that most students should be able to
finish each section in approximately 45 minutes. The assessments are on paper and can be flexibly administered by section.

Become a Pilot School


We will be conducting pilot testing in May 2023, and we want you to be a part of it. The Spring 2023 pilot exam will be administered in a pencil-and-paper format only and is free for participating schools and co-ops.

If you are interested in participating in the pilot test, please fill out the form below. This form is not binding, but indicates your desire to learn more about administering the pilot test. Please note that the pilot assessment is only open to schools and co-ops within the domestic United States, and each must meet the minimum order requirement. Schools and co-ops will receive a comprehensive score report and section score in addition to receiving a Lexile (verbal) and Quantile (mathematical) score for each student.
