CogAT Testing

To all of our parents of scholars in grades 1, 2, & 5, please be prepared for the administration of the CogAT test this week, which will be delivered as follows:


  • Wednesday, September 12, 2018: Verbal Battery - Sections 1, 2, & 3
  • Thursday, September 13, 2018: Quantitative Battery - Sections 4, 5, & 6
  • Friday, September 14, 2018: Nonverbal Battery - Sections 7, 8, & 9
  • Monday, September 17, 2018: Make-up Session


Thank you for making sure your child is present and on time each of these days. Our staff wants to provide your child with the best opportunity to be successful. Since the formal testing environment cannot be duplicated in a make-up session, it is to your child’s advantage to be at school during these scheduled test days. Once testing has begun each day, no child will be allowed to enter the classroom tardy.


Although no studying or preparation is necessary for this test, the following recommendations should help your child do his/her best each day:

  • Get plenty of rest
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Be at school on time
  • Be prepared (glasses if needed)
