3rd Grade CogAT Testing

CogAT with student working

The CogAT will be administered during the week of November 30th if we are back to school under Plan A or Plan B.  

All 3rd grade students are administered the Cognitive Abilities Test in the fall as a screener for AIG services.

Students identified for the AIG program in grades K-2  are reevaluated  in 3rd grade based on their Cognitive Abilities Test results.  This may result in a change of services and/or additional testing for continued placement.

The CogAT is made up of three sections, called batteries: the Verbal Battery, the Quantitative Battery, and the Nonverbal Battery. They are designed to assess specific reasoning skills in each area that correlate strongly to academic success. More specifically, the CogAT measures cognitive development, the ability to learn new tasks, and problem solving abilities. Because much of its content is nonverbal, the CogAT is also very useful for testing students who are not native English speakers.
