Iowa Assessments

Students use toothpicks and candy to build models of molecules

The Iowa Core Summary Report, created by Iowa Testing Programs, provides student achievement by grade for 2017-18. The charts for reading, math and science show the performance of St. Patrick students (green "District") compared to students attending schools in our area (AEA) and the state of Iowa.

St. Patrick scores exceed AEA and state scores in every category on the Average NSS by Grade charts. In almost all cases it is by a significant amount.  View the entire report here.

Being split into small groups really gave us a great environment to learn in. Students could work at a faster or slower speed depending on their needs, and teachers had time to work with us individually.
