"This is a great exam which tests thinking skills, not just memorization. I'm thrilled that you have made testing possible for students who aren't enrolled in schools...I really think this is a great test and does a much better job of looking at critical thinking skills etc. which are so important."

"It was the only standardized test I took where I felt like I was being tested in a way that mattered."

“The literature and grammar sections of the CLT10, in particular, contained well-written and relevant content which left me wanting to read the entire works, not just the excerpts on the test. I appreciate the verbal and writing selections; it gave the CLT10 an almost relaxing feel to it that I didn't have on the ACT. I would take this test again rather than any other standardized test.”
