Quality Academics

We measure the achievement of our students each year by using the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS). The ITBS is given to all students in each grade level in late January or early February.  The charts below show that Faith Lutheran School offers an outstanding education to its students.

What are percentile rankings?

Percentile rankings indicate how each class at Faith Lutheran School compares with the same level classes at schools around the country. Faith Lutheran School students consistently exceed national averages in test scores at all levels.

Please note that in 2018, ITBS employed revised testing materials and a modified grading system, but the numbers below do indicate continued stellar performance at all levels when considering this new ranking system.

Please note: 9th Grade students take the Iowa Test of Educational Development (ITED).

What is a Grade Equivalent Score?

A Grade Equivalent Score (GE) is the average level of the students in the class in a particular year.  The number represents the year and month of the students’ achievement (i.e. 3.9 would be the ninth month of 3rd Grade.)

Below you will find the Grade Equivalent Scores for the students of Faith Lutheran School over the previous seven academic years by grade level.
