Achievement Testing


Iowa Assessments Form E Complete Battery (Iowa Complete) and the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Form 7


Standardized tests help schools objectively assess students’ academic progress and potential from year to year. Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.), through Houghton Mifflin Harcourt  (HMH), offers one of the finest achievement and aptitude test combinations available.

The Iowa Assessments Form E Complete Battery (Iowa Complete) and the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Form 7 measure how students are performing on nationwide standards. The Iowa Complete is a large-scale achievement test that assesses students’ skills in reading, language, mathematics, social studies, and science. The test measures both foundation skills and higher-order thinking skills. The CogAT evaluates the development of students’ reasoning abilities using verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal cognitive tasks. When the two are taken together, the scores are a valuable tool, relating a student’s actual achievement with his or her ability and providing a wealth of information to parents and school staff.

The CogAT Form 7 is administered in Levels 2, 5, and 8. Both the  Iowa Assessments Form E Complete Battery (Iowa Complete) and the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Form 7 are administered to our students each April as an end-of-year test.
