CogAT Testing 5th Grade
During the mornings of October 4-6, all fifth graders will take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT). Please schedule morning appointments on days other than CogAT testing. The CogAT gives teachers and parents a snapshot of students’ higher level thinking, reasoning, and problem solving abilities (verbal, nonverbal, quantitative, and overall ability), as compared with fifth graders in the nation. Please be sure your awesome fifth grader has a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast on these days. Please encourage your child with a hug, a reminder to listen carefully the first time, and to do their “Personal Best” on the test. For more information, please visit www.riversidepublishing.com.
