The Iowa Assessment Spring 2019 Results:

Please note that due to COVID-19, no standardized tests were given to elementary students in 2020. The results below are from Spring 2019. 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. The following chart represents results from the spring of 2019 of all students from grades three through seven in the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics who attended an elementary/middle school in the Archdiocese of Hartford.

Through the Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools (FACS), a total of $726,818 has been awarded for academic year 2020-2021.  These awards include direct scholarship assistance to students and a new initiative; FACS awarded Covid-19 assistance grants to all Archdiocesan Schools.  These grants helped the schools prepare for safe openings by defraying some of the many costs they incurred. A committed Board of 24 Foundation Trustees continues to work to raise new funds each year to help many students attending Catholic schools.
