About Us


The Assessment of Religious Knowledge (ARK) was established to provide educators with actionable information to help improve Catholic education in schools and parishes. We provide educators with metrics that rival the other academic subject areas to enable informed decisions to improve the Catholic identity—knowledge, beliefs and behaviors—of the whole school community.


ARK was born out of decades of on-the-ground engagement with Catholic educators. In dozens of conversations with administrators and teachers alike, a clear need for information on the effectiveness of religious education was voiced consistently. Our independent team set out to resolve that information gap using cutting-edge technology and best practices for assessment.
