Standardized Testing

Standardized Testing

All Saints uses the results of yearly standardized testing as one of many tools to evaluate student strengths and weaknesses. The Iowa Assessments are given to students in grades 2 through 8 in the fall of the school year. The timing of this assessment gives teachers and parents the opportunity to identify student needs and address them in their current grade. All Saints classes have consistently scored above the national averages and Archdiocesan averages. The results of the Iowa tests given in September of 2016 are below:
