The relationship between the California Achievement Test (CAT) and teacher's marks was studied. Equivalent Stanines from the teacher's management system of objective mastery were correlated with stanines derived from CAT results for nineteen fifth-grade students. Research demonstrated that teacher's grades significantly correlated with CAT results. Also investigated was the relationship of text context to CAT objectives. Research supports the notion that the CAT is indeed representative of text objectives. Implications for instruction and evaluation are discussed.
