Terra-Nova Scores
Annually in March students all across the nation participate in the Terra-Nova Standardized Multiple Assessment Tests. These tests measure the academic achievement of students of the same grade and age from all parts of the country. St. Hilary students in grades 3 to 7 take the Multiple Assessments version of the Terra-Nova Test.

The scores for these tests are given in percentiles. A grade of 50 is average, meaning that St. Hilary students scored higher than 50% of the students across the nation in that grade. Any scores between 40 and 60 are in the average range for this test, while scores above 75 are considered superior.

As is clearly indicated below, the students at St. Hilary score very well on the Terra-Nova Test. The Total Score is a combination of the Reading, Language and Mathematics percentiles only. Terra-Nova does not include either Social Studies or Science in the Total score.
