Test Scores

Saint Thomas administers the MAPTM (Measures of Academic Progress) Standardized Tests twice yearly to students in grades 2-8. Testing occurs in October and April/May. These tests help us learn how Saint Thomas is performing as a school. Check out our Fall 2020 MAP Comparison Chart and our Fall 2019 MAP Comparison Chart.

MAPTM tests results help our teachers identify a student’s strengths are and challenges. We use the data to identify students who need targeted intervention, as well as students who are ready for our Enrichment program. For more information about these tests, visit NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association).

We administer the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) to our 8th grade students annually in January. These tests provide information for high school class placement. Check out our January 2021 and 2020 Scores.
