Standards and Testing:

St James School utilizes a variety of procedures in order to evaluate and report the progress of individual students, with regard to meeting the goals of the program. Report cards and progress reports go out three times a year.

Pre-K students are assessed daily based on CT Preschool Assessment Benchmarks.

Kindergartener students are given SESAT Tests at the end of the year to determine first-grade readiness.

Students in grades 1-8 take MAP testing under NWEA three times per year.  MAP testing is designed to function in two important ways. They show how students are doing compared to other students nationwide and they also measure personal growth of each student throughout the school year.

Students in grades 5 and 8 take The ACRE Religion test to determine their grasp on the Catholic Faith.
