Information For Growth: Adult Faith Formation Survey (IFG)

This tool is a self-assessment survey designed to assist individual adults in evaluating their personal level of religious knowledge and spirituality. It is centered on the six dimensions outlined in the U.S. Bishops’ document, Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us: A Pastoral Plan for Adult Formation in the United States:

  • knowledge of the faith
  • liturgical life
  • moral formation
  • prayer
  • communal life
  • missionary spirit

We are excited to announce that as of June 30, 2018, NCEA’s ACRE/IFG will be hosted on a new and improved platform. More detailed information on this update is forthcoming and current users will be contacted in the next few weeks for account details and next steps. Should you wish to purchase additional testing materials, please note that these items will be valid for the current school year only, through June 30, 2018. Any testing materials purchased from ETS for the fall 2018-2019 school year will be considered out-of-date.

Score Reports

The score reports provide a summary of a person’s cognitive understanding of the six dimensions of adult faith in Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us as well as attitudes in these same areas. The reports provide references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to encourage further study and growth.

Participants will receive an individualized and confidential score report. The group coordinator (if applicable) will receive a group score report. All reports are sent electronically via email.
