Equipping teachers to meet the spiritual needs of students and measure effectiveness through accurate Christ-centered Assessment.
Used by over 70,000 students, The Global Student Assessment will equip your faculty and administration to identify and differentiate your teaching to meet the spiritual needs of your students.
The workshop will reveal insight from the largest and longest ongoing global study of Christian school students and demonstrate best practices for how schools and teachers can utilize the data to implement measurable change and transformation in the life of the school and the students we exist to equip.
With ongoing data collection from over 70,000 Christian school students from SBACS ACSI and CSI schools around the world The Global Student Assessment has rapidly become one of the most useful and utilized tools for Christian schools to accurately measure spiritual growth and maturity in their students. This session will demonstrate how your school can participate in the assessment and utilize the results to implement measurable change.

Approaching the topic from a Biblical Worldview
The Christ-centered approach to assessment follows the measurement model Christ demonstrated in the gospels and invites students to respond to the Word of God using student responses to the invitations of Christ to measure the response of the heart. The 15 spiritual formation questions and 12 worldview questions combine to equip schools with a 24-page assessment result that equips schools to not only accurately measure what matters but to be good stewards by moving forward with an intentional plan for growth.
