Vicksburg Catholic Schools have received its standardardized testing data for the 2022 – 2023 school year.

Results:

Students in grades 3-7 take TerraNova, a norms-based test which measures important foundation skills in word analysis, vocabulary, language mechanics, spelling and mathematics computation and provides additional in-depth information about students’ basic skills in these content areas.

Students in grades 8-9 take PreACT 8/9. PreACT 8/9® is for schools and districts who want to support their 8th and 9th graders with an early practice experience for the ACT test. It also provides an early indicator of college and career readiness that helps educators, students, and parents identify areas of academic strength and opportunity.

Students in grade 11-12 take ACT (school day testing- many of our students take the ACT test on their own outside of the school day testing; this report does not reflect that data)
Students in AP courses are required to take the AP exam (grades 11-12)
