The Terra Nova Standardized test is administered yearly to every child enrolled in grades 2-8 (K-8 beginning April 2012)

The Terra Nova Test is a nationally recognized test used by both public and parochial schools. The main purpose of using a standardized testing program is to provide our school with information which will strengthen our school program.  The Terra Nova results indicate student performance and mastery of specific content objectives as compared to students of their own age and grade level across the nation. The subject areas measured are reading, language, mathematics, science, and social studies.  Although a standardized test is generally a good indicator of how each student performs, it is not the only means used to assess performance.
