Standardized testing is one of the many tools the Archdiocese of Washington Catholic schools use to measure our students' mastery of important concepts and skills. The primary purpose of testing is to improve students' learning and teachers' teaching by identifying both strengths and areas of improvement. Test scores are an important measure of performance, but they cannot and should not be the sole criteria upon which a family decides which Catholic school best fits their unique circumstances.
Following are the results of Standardized Testing in Reading and Mathematics. The first column shows the results for our school. The second column, ADW-MC, is the composite of all Archdiocesan Catholic Elementary School in Montgomery County. The third column lists the results of standardized testing in Maryland public elementary schools.
