Assessments

ICSJ utilizes multiple measuring tools to assess the achievement and ability of each student at every grade level. Day-to-day teacher assessments, combined with data gathered from standardized tests, offer a comprehensive picture of each child’s individual progress. Faculty uses this information to identify students who are in need of support or further challenge and alter lesson plans and personalized instruction accordingly. Parents are easily able to track their child’s progress throughout the year and receive clear, actionable feedback to ensure future success.

 

Parents are invited, twice per year, to a parent-teacher conference to review the current trimester report card, assessments, behavior and overall progress. Parents are also welcome to schedule additional time with the faculty as needed.


As a testament to our challenging curriculum, our students' standardized test scores have traditionally scored in the top 10% of the nation. 3rd - 8th grade ICSJ students participate in the ACT Aspire Test. We are proud to report that ICSJ students continue to perform not only higher than the national average, but they also score higher than the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic School averages.
