6th Grade students during the TerraNova testing in March 2015

Students in Grades 2 through 8 in the schools of the Archdiocese of Newark took the TerraNova, Third Edition in March 2015. TerraNova is a standardized achievement test published by CTB/MCGraw-Hill and is widely used by public and non-public schools nationwide to measure academic achivement. The schools of the Archdiocese of Newark administer the test annually to track student progress and to monitor the effectiveness of instructional programs. Individual and group achievement on the TerraNova assessment is reported in relation to a norming sample that is representative of the national population, thus enabling parents/guardians and educators to view aademic achievement in relation to the student’s national peer group.

The graph below shows the percent of St. Francis Academy students scores falling within each quartile range on the national percentile scale. The first bar shows the distribution for the national norm group with 25% of scores falling within each quartile. The bars representing St. Francis Academy show that the vast majority of student scores in each subject section of the TerraNova assessment are within the upper quartile of the distribution.
