Letter from Superintendent Branaman September 2022
"The Catholic Schools Office is excited to announce a new system-wide Comprehensive Assessment Plan impacting all second to eighth-grade students, beginning the 2022-2023 school year. These assessments will replace the summative assessment, Scantron, previously administered. Utilizing the Scantron assessment is no longer an option based on the company’s choice to end the product’s availability. I would like to thank the Assessment Committee, comprised of staff from the Catholic Schools Office, principals and teachers, for their time and energy that went into the review of multiple assessment tools to find the best one to meet our schools’ needs. Like the Scantron assessment tool, NWEA MAP Growth will assess student knowledge three times a year. All Catholic elementary schools in The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington will administer the NWEA MAP Growth Reading, Language Arts, Math, and Science assessments. Student knowledge will be assessed in fall, winter, and spring."
