Standardized testing

International Schools’ Assessment (ISA)
The ISA is a standardized test designed specifically for international school students and assesses mathematical literacy, reading and writing skills. The test is administered in February annually to students in grades 3-9, and results are available to parents prior to the end of the school year.

NWEA Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) tests present students with engaging, age-appropriate content. As a student responds to questions, the test responds to the student, adjusting up or down in difficulty. The result is a rewarding experience for the student, and a wealth of detailed information for teachers, parents and administrators. For educators, it means at last having timely information that, used well, can change the course of a student's school year.

Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying  Test (PSAT) and SAT
The PSAT and SAT - American norm-referenced aptitude tests - are administered to students throughout the school year. The PSAT is administered to all students in grades 10 and 11 in October. The SAT is offered 7 times during the school year on Saturdays. The SAT is required by most American universities and a growing number of English-language universities throughout the world. The SAT is voluntary.
