Iowa Tests
The IOWA Tests of Basic Skills and COGAT Cognitive Abilities Tests will be administered to all students in grades 1-7 of the Diocese of Bridgeport (including All Saints Catholic School ) beginning Monday, March 12. Grades 2, 4, 6 and 7 will take the IOWA's and grades 1, 3, and 5 will take the COGATS. The areas tested are reading, writing, and math. The results of these tests will become part of your child's permanent record. The tests, given over a span of two weeks, test your child 's critical thinking skills and will give us valuable information about your child's strengths and weaknesses in language arts and math. They will also assist the administration and teachers in assessing our curriculum maps to inform instruction. It is important that your child eats a good breakfast and gets plenty of rest during testing time. It is also important that your child is on time for school each day. Any questions concerning testing can be directed to the assistant principal, Ms.Licare
