CogAT

The CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test) is given to all second graders in the district.  It measures general reasoning abilities in three domains: verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal.  Scores are used to determine categories for Advanced Learning Plans (ALP) or even possible placement in a GT Center School. 

The Verbal Battery is comprised of three sub tests: Picture (Verbal) Analogies, Picture (Verbal) Classification, and Sentence Completion. 

The Quantitative Battery is comprised of three sub tests: Number Analogies, Number Puzzles, and Number Series.

The Nonverbal Battery is comprised of three sub tests: Figure Matrices, Paper Folding, and Figure Classification.

If you have a second grade child and would like more information on your child's CogAT results, you can use their report and the website below to gain more insight on your child's strengths.
