Terra Nova Testing

Whitesburg Christian Academy administers the ACSI Edition of the TerraNova, Third Edition achievement test to grades 1-8 in the spring. This assessment is published by CTB/McGraw-Hill. TerraNova 3 content is closely aligned to state and national standards. It is designed to measure concepts, processes, and objectives taught throughout the nation in Reading, Language, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The ACSI Edition includes the Bible Assessment subtest and five additional PLUS tests for assessment in Word Analysis, Vocabulary, Spelling, Language Mechanics, and Math Computation.

Scores that are included in the TerraNova 3 score reports are percentiles, scale scores, stanines, and normal curve equivalents. The data is available to parents online.

Since achievement testing is such a critical component of our school’s instructional program, TerraNova 3 and the complete assessment program will provide valuable information to parents and teachers about students’ academic progress. It also becomes a teaching resource for our faculty, allowing us to collect student data that, in turn, helps us make wise decisions in meeting the learning needs of our students.
