Scantron Performance Series
Scantron is an individualized standardized assessment which is administered three times a year in the fall, winter, and spring to students in grades two through eight. The computer adaptive assessment is given in math, reading, and algebra. Students enrolled in Algebra I do not take the mathematics assessment. Scantron identifies ability levels, academic growth over time, and proper instructional levels for each student in reading and mathematics. Mary of Nazareth School has surpassed Blue Ribbon score requirements in math and reading for grades three through eight in each of the past 15 years.

The Faith and Knowledge Assessment is the religion assessment developed by the Archdiocese of Washington, and is aligned to the curriculum guide, Forming Disciples for the New Evangelization. The standardized Faith and Knowledge Assessment is administered once a year to students in grades three through eight and measures what students know, understand, and are able to do at each grade level. The assessment ensures that the faith is taught in a complete, systematic and consistent way in all Catholic school programs.
