ARK (Assessment of Religious Knowledge)

How is the Assessment of Religious Knowledge (ARK) different from other testing?

ARK allows you to see how individual students are learning from 2nd through 12th grades and not just a snapshot of aggregate scores across just three grades. Also: 

  • ARK shows students’ longitudinal record and growth scores to track individual and aggregate performance over time
  • ARK offers the opportunity to include custom questions to assess your own diocesan initiatives.
  • ARK offers belief & behavior questions linked to six domains of the Faith to better assess Catholic Identity and culture.
  • ARK does NOT include intrusive questions regarding your students or faculty’s private lives.
