Spring Administration of the Cognitive Abilities Test
In accordance with state requirements, the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) is offered at different times during the school year. The spring administration of the CogAT is only for students in Kindergarten and Grade 1. Testing will be offered in August 2016 for Grade 2, so students who are currently in Grade 1 may choose to wait until that test administration.
The spring test administration date is Wednesday, March 23 and Thursday, March 24th. Testing is done before school and begins at 7:15am. The location for testing is the IDS room, number 214, by the 5th grade classrooms at Ventana Vista. Students should plan to arrive at 7:00am as testing begins promptly at 7:15am.
Requests for testing must be made in writing by Thursday, March, 17, 2016. Permission forms are available in the school office or you can request a form from me by email.
It is recommended that parents of primary grade students consult with the classroom teacher and/or gifted specialist before requesting testing. Test results for such young students are valid for a short time only and are NOT required for the identification of primary students for differentiated instruction or extended groups in reading and math in first or second grades. The assessments used to identify students for these groups are given to all children at the beginning and throughout the year as part of the regular educational program.
