Christian Fellowship School administers summative standardized tests at every grade level K-12 as a means of assessing each individual student’s attainment of learning objectives. These assessments are required by our accreditation, and they provide a comparison with the performance of students at the same grade level nationally, as well as with students in other private, Christian schools within the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). The objectives assessed within these standardized test are aligned with national educational standards (NAEP), and they provide group data useful for the evaluation of our curriculum and instructional processes.
CFS administers the TerraNova3 assessment to grades K-9 each Spring, with the InView cognitive ability assessment administered in grades 2 – 9. The Pre-ACT exam is given to students in tenth grade, and students in grades ten and eleven take the PSAT exam, which is the qualifying exam for the National Merit Scholarship. Students in their junior and senior year also take the ACT and/or SAT college entrance exam.
