Elementary – IOWA Assessments, Grades 3-7

The Iowa Assessment is a norm referenced standardized assessment designed and developed to measure student achievement and growth.  It is given to both public and non-public school students nation-wide.

The following Iowa Assessment results represent data as national grade equivalencies (NGE).  A grade equivalent is a score that describes student achievement on a grade level scale. The NGE is a decimal number that describes academic performance in terms of grade level and month. For example, if a 3rd grade student receives a NGE of 4.2 on the Reading Test, this means the student scored as well as a fourth grade student in the second month of the school year if given the same third grade Reading Test.

Secondary – SAT’s

The SAT® was redesigned in March of 2016.  The redesigned tests are based on different specifications than the old tests, assessing two areas: evidence-based reading and writing and mathematics.  The following data reflect the senior class of 2018 who took the new SAT®.    The graph below illustrates the consistently high overall student achievement of high school seniors from the district of the Archdiocese of Hartford as compared to total group scores from the state of CT and nationally.

The scores represent the results of their final sitting for the SAT, not their highest overall score.  Actual scores are higher than represented in this chart.

Each assessment in the SAT Suite has an associated set of metrics called the College and Career Readiness Benchmarks.  The SAT Math benchmark is the section score associated with a 75% chance of earning at least a C in first-semester, credit-bearing, college-level courses in algebra, statistics, precalculus, or calculus.  The SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW) benchmark is associated with a 75% chance of earning at least a C in first-semester, credit-bearing, college-level courses in history, literature, social science, or writing (College Boards, 2018).
