Student performance is measured using a variety of assessment methods and communicated to parents via report cards and conferences. In addition, students in Grades 2-8 take the IOWA Assessments each spring and students in Grades 5 and 8 take the Assessment of Children's Religious Education (ACRE) Exam each fall. School of the Incarnation's score summaries are provided below. Parents are encouraged to remember that standardized test scores are not the only measure of a school’s quality or of student achievement. These tests are designed to assess an individual student’s performance compared to all students nationally. They do not compare a school’s quality to other schools. Many other factors should affect your decision about which school your child should attend, including: educational philosophy, curriculum quality, teacher credentials, class size, location, cost, availability of resources, discipline policy, opportunities for parental involvement and communications.
