St. Aloysius School participates in several standardized assessments aligned with our course of study. All Schools in the Toledo Diocese administer the Assessment of Catechesis/Religious Education (A.C.R.E) test in grades 5 and 8. This test is published by the National Catholic Education Association and is given in the fall of the school year.
Toledo Diocesan Catholic Schools use the NWEA MAP Assessment as one part of the complete review of a child’s ability. All tests begin in relation to a student’s grade level and are taken online. The results are instantaneous and provide valuable data to guide teachers in instruction and intervention. The diocese requires the test for grades 3, 5 and 7 participated in the fall and spring. As a school we may test other grade levels or at other times of the year as needed.
Here at St. Aloysius we administer the InView Cognitive Test in the fall to select grade levels. These results help to indicate student progress and promote learning by helping us to meet the unique needs of each individual child.
