6th Grade Universal Screen - CogAT

ALL students in Sixth Grade not identified for gifted programming will take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) in November, based on state requirements. This assessment indicates the level and pattern of cognitive development of a student in comparison to grade and age mates. These general reasoning abilities, which start developing at birth and continue through early adulthood, are influenced by experiences gained both in and out of school.  

If your child is already identified for gifted programming, they will not participate in this universal screen testing. Your Gifted Education Facilitator will contact you directly with information about this process.
