Standardized testing is one of the many tools the Archdiocese of Washington Catholic schools uses to measure our students' mastery of important concepts and skills. The name of the standarized test is Performance Testing by Scantron; commonly referred to as Scantron. The primary purpose of this testing is to improve students' learning and teachers' teaching by identifying both strengths and areas of improvement. Test scores are an important measure of performance, but they cannot and should not be the sole criteria upon which a family decides which Catholic school best fits their unique circumstances.
Grades 2-8 are required to take Scantron twice a year. Scantron measures achievement in reading, language arts, word analysis, vocabulary, language mechanics, spelling, mathematics, and mathematics computation. Click here for more information about the Performance Testing by Scantron.
