Catholic Knowledge Assessment

Catholic Knowledge Assessment

The purpose of the Catholic Knowledge Assessment is to determine how much knowledge a person has regarding the Catholic faith. This is a tool for catechesis, so catechists know where to devote their efforts to benefit students. There are two levels of assessment. The first level is basic and is appropriate for young students and those new to Christianity. The second assessment is more suitable for adults and those in Catechism and RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) classes.

Catholic Knowledge Assessment

I found that the quiz covered a good range of topics and while I knew all but two questions, believe it would be a good test of knowledge for many people.

Romano Kidd

Good Review of One's Basic Understanding of the Faith

The questions are a good, simple review of the foundational truths of the Catholic faith. Would be a good pre-assessment for students at the beginning of the academic year.
