The CogAT or Cognative Abilities Test is used as an entrance exam for Gifted and Talented (GATE) programs. The CogAT is a comprehensive test that focuses questions in 3 overall subject areas called batteries (verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative).
The NNAT3 or Naglieri Nonverbal Abilities Test is used as an entrance exam for Gifted and Talented (GATE) programs. This test only has nonverbal questions which are unlike most questions children have seen before.
The Iowa Assessments exam is a test that is also used as an entrance exam into Gifted and Talented (GATE) programs. This test focuses on 10 subject areas including reading comprehension, writing, mathematics, science and social studies.
Practice tests in the format of the CogAT®, NNAT3®, Iowa Assessments and WISC-IV® exams.
Our practice tests have helped many kids get into their school's best programs. Many of our kids score in the top 10% of the nation, some with perfect or near perfect scores!
We understand how important it is to ensure your children are given the opportunities they deserve when it comes to their education. One of the greatest opportunities your child will have is entering the gifted program, if they can qualify for the program based on their test scores.
Most resources state that there are really no ways to prepare for these tests – that your child should only get a good night’s sleep before taking the test. It is guaranteed that if your child is not familiar with some of the symbols used in the test or if they have never done some of the types of problems before, that they will not do as well as they could on this test – perhaps jeopardizing their admission into the gifted program. So what should the average parent do?
We provide practice tests for the gifted program entry exams that offer similar questions and formats to the actual test. These practice tests are invaluable tools for your child to score their best – and get into the best programs!
