Standardized Tests

At least once in each school year, IQA administers a statewide and/or nationally standardized assessment to all students. This is intended to provide a third-party objective measure of the school’s success toward its academic goals. Such a test will, at minimum, measure achievement in the areas of English language and Mathematics. IQA will periodically review and update our adopted standardized assessment to ensure maximum compatibility with our academic program. Parents will be notified of standardized test scores once they are reported back to the school.

IQA currently utilizes the nationally norm-referenced Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills (CTBS) assessment battery to provide for valid comparisons between IQA and other public and private schools throughout the nation.

Middle School students also take the Duke University TIP – Talent Identification Program test.

IQA high school students take additional standardized tests along with their peers nationwide. These include the PSAT, SAT, SAT Subject, and ACT. Mashallah our college-bound seniors outperform their peers nationwide!
