Spring Administration of the Cognitive Abilities Test
In accordance with state requirements, the
Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT)
is offered at different times during the year
. The spring administration is for Grades K-1 only.
Testing will be offered in August for Grade 2, so students currently in Grade 1 may choose to wait. The testing, which is done
before school at 7:15
in the IDS rooms (Canyon View- 5
grade pod, Ventana Vista- room 214), takes two sessions to complete. Students must attend both sessions. Tuesday, April 8 Wednesday, April 9 Thursday, April 10 Friday, April 11 Canyon View 7:15 7:15 Ventana Vista 7:15 7:15
Requests for testing must be made in writing by Thursday March 27, 2014. Forms are available in the school office or by email from me.
It is recommended that parents of primary 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 a regular part of the educational program.
