Scantron Performance Series
The Scantron Performance Series is an adaptive, computer-based diagnostic tool administered to students in Grades 2 through 8 three times a year—September, January, and May. Scantron testing provides instant data in math and reading and is integral in helping us facilitate our highly acclaimed customized education by allowing our teachers to place students in proper instructional groups.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence. In large part because of its outstanding test scores, St. Raphael School received the prestigious National Blue Ribbon award in 2019—the first year it was eligible.
Faith Knowledge Assessment
The Faith Knowledge Assessment is a Catholic standards-based assessment developed by the Archdiocese of Washington and administered annually in the spring. The test is administered online through Scantron’s Achievement Series to students in Grades 3 through 8. The assessment ensures mastery and that the Catholic faith is taught in a complete, systematic, and consistent way.
