Name and Types of Gifted Tests

The CogAT and OLSAT are cognitive tests. These tests produce a school ability score, which is similar to, but not the same as, an IQ test.  In essence, they measure a child’s reasoning ability and are predictors of a child’s ability to perform in an academic setting.

The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Form 7 has 3 batteries of tests: Verbal, Quantitative, and Nonverbal.  The Otis Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) has both verbal and nonverbal oriented questions that are mixed throughout the test.

All testing that is done in the 2016-2017 school year is for service in the 2017-2018 school year.
