Time spent teaching and learning is valuable. In order to ensure that students are comprehending what is taught and the quality of education we provide is meeting their needs, we assess student learning through standardized testing.
All of the schools within the diocese use a common report card. In grades K-6th, St. Stanislaus School uses a standards-based report card so that parents are able to see the skills that their students have learned. Traditional report cards assign a grade for each subject. Standards-based report cards allow for a parent to see all of the individual skill areas that a student should be acquiring knowledge. Using this type of report card it better allows parents to see areas where a student has mastered a skill or where they may need additional work. Our 7th & 8th graders report cards follow a more traditional approach to letter grades.
NWEA Measures of Academic Progress
Kindergarten - 8-grade students take the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test. It is a research-based, computerized assessment that allows educators to determine academic growth throughout the course of the school year. Our students' test scores clearly indicate that our students outperform their public school counterparts in all areas. This test is given three times a school year.
Grades K-1 are assessed in Math and Reading.
Grades 2-8 are assessed in Math, Reading, and Language Usage
