Each year the “Information for Growth Assessment of Children/Youth Religious Education” (IFG: ACRE) is administered to all Archdiocesan students, both Catholic and non-Catholic, in grades 5, 8, and 12. The IFG: ACRE is produced by the National Catholic Educational Association and serves as an integrated approach to assessment offering both faith knowledge (cognitive domain) as well as beliefs, behaviors, attitudes, and practices (affective domain) sections. Results of the IFG: ACRE are used by Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta to guide the implementation and development of religious instruction and formation.
