Religious Education Assessments

Information for Growth - tools to support effective catechesis for a lifetime of learning! NCEA has provided quality, reliable religious education assessment tools for more than three decades. The ACRE assessment (Student Religious Education) is an integrated approach to faith knowledge assessment, and the IFG (Adult Faith Formation) is a survey for knowing and living Catholic faith. These tools help NCEA fulfill teaching missions of the Catholic Church.

We are excited to announce that as of June 30, 2018, NCEA’s ACRE/IFG is being hosted on a new and improved platform built by My Catholic Faith Technologies. You may order assessment materials from My Catholic Faith Technologies for the next school year (2018-2019) by following the button link below.
