|Carter Christian Academy implements the Terra Nova3 assessment preffered by ACSI, the Association of Christian Schools International, and
used in many states around the country. TerraNova is a series of standardized achievement tests used in the United States designed to assess
K-12 student achievement in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, vocabulary, spelling, and other areas. This test
helps teachers identify student needs and measure progress in academic areas. The Bible Assessment Subtest of the ACSI Edition of
TerraNova allows Christian school educators to assess and demonstrate how much biblical knowledge students have acquired.
At Carter Christian Academy, our students are prepared academically to compete against some of the best students in the nation. In addition,
CCA students' characters are being shaped with biblical principles and knowledge. On the Bible portion of the test, a majority of the CCA
students tested as having Excellent or Proficient biblical knowledge. No students tested below the Basic Bible Knowledge level on the test.
Students at CCA are achieving their goals, both academically and spiritually.
Beginning this year, CCA will be assessed nationally by NAEP, National Assessment of Educational Progress. NAEP is an essential
measurement of student achievement in both public and private schools. It is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment
of what the nation's students know and can do. NAEP assesses a representative of private school students at grades 4, 8, and 12.
NAEP also compares public school student performance to private school student performance on the assessment. In 2013, the most current
year for which mathematics and reading results are available, students from private schools on average had higher scale scores than students
from public schools in mathematics and reading at both grades 4 and 8.
