CogAT Assessment for second grade students

Informational Overview

CogAT Assessment for second grade students

Fall 2018

During the month of November, students in second grade will be administered the CogAT test of cognitive abilities.  This assessment is administered as a rolling administration, meaning that the date and time is dependent upon the building and students’ schedule.  The range of dates for administration is November 7 – 16.

Results will be emailed to parents the week of December 3. When viewing test scores it is important to interpret them as representing a range of ability rather than a precise, specific or unchanging point on a score scale. It is also important to keep in mind that there are many factors that affect a child’s school achievement such as effort, attention, persistence, attitude and support at home and school.

Please be aware that the CogAT is a test that measures both general and specific reasoning abilities. Students are assessed in the areas of verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal abilities. A score at or above 128 on this assessment meets the criteria established by the Ohio Department of Education for a superior cognitive gifted identification.  Average scores on this assessment fall between 90 to 110. Above average scores range from 111 to 127. Students who earn a score of 127 will be afforded a cognitive ability retest opportunity later in the school year. Communication will come from the gifted services team regarding that opportunity.
