Standardized Testing

St. Aloysius School participates in several standardized assessments aligned with our course of study. Schools in the Toledo Diocese administer the ARK (Assessment of Religious Knowledge) Test to grades 2-8.

Toledo Diocesan Catholic Schools also 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 K-8 in the fall and spring.  As a school we may test at other times of the year as needed.
