Welcome to the IAC Assessment Series
The IAC Assessment is the premiere assessment series for Christian educators, ministry leaders, parents, and students, administered by the International Association for Creation. Individuals can officially document their level of understanding in basic Christian doctrine and creation science.
International Association for Creation created the IAC Assessment by bringing together scholars and experts from across a wide range of faith-based disciplines, including top leaders in the Christian education and ministry field. The IAC Assessment s a tool to help every Christian discover strengths, find opportunities, and grow in their understanding of the Christian faith.
The IAC Assessment consists of two parts, the Biblical Creation Test and the Basic Christian Doctrine Test. In the Biblical Creation Test, there are sixty-five questions across the ten most important topics in the field of origins. In the Basic Christian Doctrine Test, thirty-three items touch on ten topics foundational to the Christian faith.
As someone involved in Christian-centered education, whether you are a school teacher or administrator, a parent or grandparent, a pastor or ministry leader, a high school or college student, it is important that you have a clear understanding of your origins.
Use the IAC Assessment as a tool to discover your worldview and find ways to deepen your faith.
The IAC Assessment helps you discover your strengths, find growth opportunities, and set out on a path for success in Christian education and ministry.
International Association for Creation and Genesis Apologetics have partnered to create the Christian Education Assessment supporting Christian educators, parents, and students. The questions and cutoff scores for each assessment were set by a panel of nine experienced Biblical Creation Ministry Professionals from leading institutions.
The Christian Education Assessment is managed by International Association for Creation, with assessments being developed by a peer-reviewed board of Biblical Creation Ministry Professionals under the supervision of Genesis Apologetics; ongoing program advancement is overseen by committees of active Biblical creation professionals in various disciplines.
The IAC Assessment helps you understand where you stand in your worldview, your strengths, which opportunities you have to grow, and how you can succeed in your calling. The IAC Assessment will help you evaluate your own worldview as well as provide you with the following insights:
-Track Progress: The IAC Assessment allows you to track the progress of your teachers, your church leadership team, your students, or your teens. Now you can know if what you are teaching is being understood; you can even objectively assess the progress of an increasing biblical view of origins over time instead of relying on guesswork. The IAC Assessment will help you to foster unity, grow team engagement, and be a great catalyst of meaningful conversation with those in your community.
-Grow Together: The IAC Assessment will help lead your team to a greater understanding of foundational doctrinal truths found in Scripture, identify key areas of opportunity for your team or family to grow in their Biblical view of origins.
-Lead with Confidence: The IAC Assessment was developed over a year-long process by top scholars and experts in the Christian community and put through a multi-step validation process to ensure each individual has the best of the best bench-marking available. We continually monitor potential opportunities for growth to help leaders like you have confidence.
-100% Digital: The IAC Assessment is 100% online and requires approximately 30 to 45 minutes per assessment. Results are delivered digitally, including correct answers and the option to remediate answers which may have been missed while receiving live feedback.
-School Teachers and Administrators: Local churches and Christian schools use The Christian Education Assessment for staff development and training, to screen potential new hires, and as a way to train incoming volunteers for impactful ministry. Throughout the Christian Education Assessment, individuals will find a common vocabulary that will help bring lasting unity to any team.
-Parents and Grandparents: Parents and grandparents can use the Christian Education Assessment individually for their own in-home use, or they may find themselves with the privilege to use the Christian Education Assessment in a parenting class, family seminar, or conference for grandparents.
-Pastors and Ministry Leaders: Pastors and ministry leaders use the Christian Education Assessment as a valuable tool to help them continue growing in their faith and increasing their understanding of important concepts relating to the biblical view of origins.
-High school and College Students: Students who take the Christian Education Assessment are recommended to be in the ninth grade or above. The Christian Education Assessment is made for individual in-home student assessment as well as group assessment of a single classroom or entire student populations.
This program involves a two-part online test that includes a 65-item “Biblical Creation” knowledge assessment covering the ten most important topics in the Biblical Creation field and a 33-item “Basic Christian Doctrine” assessment that covers the elemental tenants of the historic Christian faith.
