Standardized Testing

The Archdiocese Testing program for elementary school requires that the Iowa Assessments (1st – 8th grade) and the Cognitive Ability Test (2nd, 5th, and 7th grades) be administered annually to assess the effectiveness of the school’s academic programs and to evaluate the progress of the individual child.

In addition, the NCEA information for Growth: Assessment of children/Youth Religious Education (ACRE) is given annually to students in grades 5 and 8.

The NWEA MAP Test (Northwest Evaluation Association Measures of Academic Progress) will be administered to students in grades 2 – 8 three times during the academic year: in mid-September, mid-January, and early May. MAP Test data will be used to inform differentiated instruction and blended learning.
