Measuring students’ faith knowledge against catechetical standards is as important to Catholic education as measuring math or reading knowledge. The Archdiocese of Washington, DC, developed a curriculum guide for faith instruction called Forming Disciples for the New Evangelization and its companion Faith Knowledge Assessment. Join our curriculum and assessment experts to explore this approach to standards-based measurement of faith knowledge.


What You Will Learn

  • The foundational principles of FDNE and how those translated into specific and concrete educational standards.
  • The development of the curriculum guide that helps drive instruction around the standards.
  • The design and implementation of FKA and how it helps demonstrate a student’s progress in learning about their faith.
