CAT tests are Computer Adaptive Tests. CAT tests are shorter than the standard tests since they have the ability to select questions for students based on performance. The most important difference for the students to understand is that they may not go back and revisit a question nor may they skip questions. 

 VDOE highly recommends that educators read the overall and introductory .pdf documents PRIOR to reading or administering the Guided Practice Suggestions. 

It is highly recommended that teachers or other adults read the introduction documents prior to reading the Guided Practice Suggestions:

These guided practice suggestions are designed to be used in conjunction with the practice items. Please download the TN8 applicationThis link takes you out of the Virginia Department of Education website to access the practice items for each course prior to opening the guide.
