St. Ignatius Loyola Academy joins in Offsite Testing

November 10, 2011

In a strategic effort to broaden our reach to more children in Baltimore, B.E.S.T. now offers offsite assessment testing to area schools and organizations. As part of the admissions process, B.E.S.T. administers the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT2), which uses progressive matrices to allow for a culturally neutral evaluation of students’ nonverbal reasoning and general problem-solving ability, regardless of the individual student’s primary language, education, culture or socioeconomic background. This admissions season, six sites participated in offsite testing. Our goal is to double this number in 2013.
