Madison Academy classes score higher than National averages on Iowa Assessment
The 9th and 10th grade classes outperformed National Percentile Rankings for each category on the Iowa Assessments. In late September, all our Freshmen and Sophomore students were given the Iowa Assessment and Cognitive Abilities Test over a period of three mornings. This series of standardized tests is designed to provide information which can be used to improve classroom instruction and to report performance in basic skills to parents, students, and the general public in objective, meaningful terms. Please note that standardized tests can never replace teacher-based assessment. It does, however, supplement teachers with additional information that may help clarify a larger picture of student performance. We thank God for each student’s willingness to engage in learning, teachers that mentor and parents that encourage.
