CogAT Screener

CogAT Screening Levels 9-14

The CogAT Screening Form is a short form of CogAT. Both the CogAT Screening Form and the complete CogAT tests appraise the cognitive abilities of students from kindergarten through grade 12. Both measure students' learned reasoning abilities. Although grounded in biological processes, these abilities are developed through in-school and out-of-school experiences.

The primary purpose of the CogAT Screening Form is to reduce the amount of testing for schools that use CogAT scores solely to screen students for possible inclusion in programs for the gifted and talented. The complete CogAT should be administered when schools use profiles of students' verbal, quantitative, and spatial reasoning abilities to help adapt instruction to capitalize on the learning styles of students or to predict achievement.

Each box of screening tests comes with 25 test booklets and 1 administration guide.

Levels 9 - 14 (grades 3-8) are available for check out.
