The Information for Growth Assessment of Children/Youth Religious Education (IFG: ACRE for students) helps school, parish and diocesan leaders evaluate the faith knowledge and attitudes of students in Catholic schools and parish-based religious education programs.
The National Catholic Educational Association Information for Growth: Assessment of Children/Youth Religious Education (NCEA IFG: ACRE edition) is a reliable, tested tool for assessing Catholic religious education programs. Released in Fall 2013, NCEA IFG: ACRE edition intends to help Catholic educators and catechetical leaders evaluate local Catholic parish and school programs by gathering evidence of what particular groups of students know about Catholicism and how their lives reflect development as Christian disciples.
The local site, parish or Catholic school, will receive a group report for each NCEA IFG: ACRE level used. Diocesan level leaders can also request a composite summary report of all NCEA ACRE participating schools and parishes in the (arch)diocese.
When you participate in NCEA IFG: ACRE edition assessments or IFG survey, you are eligible for consultation services from NCEA. Call NCEA at 800-711-6232 any time you have questions about the NCEA IFG: ACRE and IFG assessment tools. Find assessment updates and brochure at www.ncea.org .
