Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Screener— Grades 3 and 5

In October, all 3rd and 5th grade students in Beaverton will be administered the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Screener. This 30-minute test measures students’ learned reasoning abilities through verbal/picture analogies, number analogies and figure matrices.

Currently the main purpose for administering the CogAT is to identify students for TAG in the area of intellectual ability. Students who score at the 97th percentile or above on the CogAT screener will be invited to test with the full version of the CogAT that is used for potential TAG identification. The full version of the CogAT will be given in November. For more information about testing, your school’s TAG facilitator. When test results are returned, we will be sending you a copy with additional information about our TAG program.

Esta prueba de 30 minutos mide las habilidades de razonamiento aprendidas de los estudiantes a través de analogías verbales / ilustradas, analogías numéricas y matrices de figuras.

Actualmente, el objetivo principal de administrar CogAT es identificar a los estudiantes para TAG en el área de la capacidad intelectual. Se invitará a los estudiantes que obtengan puntajes del percentil 97 o superior en la evaluación CogAT a que tomen la prueba con la versión completa de CogAT que se usa para la identificación potencial de TAG. La versión completa de CogAT se entregará en noviembre. Para obtener más información, comuníquese con (su Facilitador de TAG para la construcción).
