Weaving Christ's Seamless Garment: Assessment of Catholic Religious Education.
Convey, John J.; Thompson, Andrew D.
Two pastoral priorities that today's catechetical leaders place toward the top of their agenda are assessment and integration. Each priority has a rich fullness, grounded in the church's contemporary catechetical documents. This book tells the story of what youths know about their faith and how they put their faith into action. The chapter titles include the following: (1) "The Key Catechetical Principles Pertaining to Assessment"; (2) "Methodology for the Study"; (3) "Students' Religious Knowledge"; (4) "Students' Religious Beliefs, Practices, and Perceptions"; (5) "Relationships are Central to Religious Value Development"; (6) "Predictors of Religious Knowledge and Religious Practice"; (7) "Summary and Conclusions."
