Assessment Information

The best measure of student achievement at Risen Christ Catholic School is our graduates’ success in high school and beyond. We strive for 100% acceptance rates at the best college prep high schools in the area.

Risen Christ Catholic School, which is a K-8 school, uses multiple measures to assess student progress and achievement. Curriculum-based measures include portfolios, work samples, rubrics and end-of unit exams. Standardized test instruments include the Children’s Progress Academic Assessment (CPAA) in K-2, Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) in K-5, and Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA-III) in grades 6-8.

Student assessment results and other data are used to guide instruction and target skills students need to master, so all can achieve their full potential. To see our most recent test scores, please visit our Proven Results page.
