Standardized tests are administered to 1st through 10th level students each year. Students are tested in several academic areas including English/language arts, writing, and mathematics. The purpose of the testing program for the student is to provide a practical life experience. The faculty and parents gain additional information about the student’s progress. The data from the tests are evaluated each year to further examine the curriculum. The results of such tests are used to identify students’ strengths and weaknesses in academic areas.
Alcuin School gives the ERB Achievement Test, which is administered annually in 3rd through 7th grades. Internal standardized testing is administered to 1st and 2nd level students. Unofficial results will be used for curricular purposes only.
The PSAT 8/9 will be administered to the 8th and 9th grade students in December.
The PSAT/NMQT will be administered at school in October. The 10th graders take these tests for practice. The 11th graders take these tests for preparation for college admissions exams to assess their strengths and plan for development in areas of need.
If extended time is required on standardized testing, the evaluation and recommendation must be submitted to the Director of Student Support no less than two (2) weeks prior to testing. Evaluation and recommendation must have taken place within three (3) years of testing.
