In the 2012 – 2013 school year, the Archdiocese moved to a new form of the IOWA Basic Skills Test. Students in grades 3 – 7 take the IOWAs in the spring of each year. Additionally, grades 2 and 5 take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT), which essentially measures a student’s IQ. 8th graders planning to enroll in a Catholic high school take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) in November each year.
The IOWA test results provide data on each student and allow teachers to monitor the progress of their students over the years. Additionally, longitudinal studies will be created to constantly review and evaluate our curriculum.
SASEAS School is proud of its academic record of performance and continues to remain academically challenging to its students.
