Standardized Test Scores
We are very proud of how well our students do on the standardized tests that they take each year. Our elementary and junior high students are tested with MAPS tests; juniors and seniors take the ACT and MME.
Elementary and junior high students are tested three times a year using MAPS Testing. Student MAP testing results are reported in RIT scores (short for Rasch Unit). A RIT score is an estimation of a student’s instructional level and also measures student progress or growth in school.
At St. Patrick School, our students are tested in the following subjects:
- K-2: Reading and Math
- 3-5: Reading, Math, Language Arts
- 6-8: Reading, Math, Language Arts and Science
The ACT is taken by high school juniors and seniors. These scores reflect the scores of the St. Patrick students, who took the test in the spring of their junior year. 2015 was the final year that Michigan students took the ACT.
The MME (Michigan Merit Exam) was mandated for all high school
juniors. It was discontinued in 2014.
