TERRANOVA Assessments through 3/2

Each year Catholic schools throughout the state of Florida participate in standardized testing. This year the Terra Nova assessments will be administered to all students in grades 2-8. These tests are used to help us learn how your child is progressing toward standards, performing relative to their peers, and provide us with instructional activities which can help close achievement gaps.

The testing window for Terra Nova assessments is from February 22- March 2, 2021 with makeups to be completed by March 12, 2021.

Information for our families:

  • PLEASE refrain from making appointments, arriving late, and/or being absent unless ill.
  • Students will be testing for 1 to 1 ½ hours during the testing window each morning.
  • Students should come to school rested and on time.
  • Student homework will be kept to a minimum.
  • Ample breaks will be provided.
  • Students arriving late will have to wait in the office until their class has a break.
  • Please read all notes from your individual classroom/homeroom teachers about the assessments.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in the education of your child.
