The CogAT Test is a great way to start your child climb the Academic Ladder

What is the CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test)?

CogAT test scores are used by K-12 teachers in the United States to make student placement decisions for gifted programs. Each school or program sets up their own requirements on the CogAT percentile rankings for their gifted programs. The CogAT is also, often used by parents to understand their child’s cognitive strengths, weaknesses and learning styles.

The CogAT test is published by Riverside Insights but administered mainly by the private and public schools in the US.

Which CogAT level should my child take?

The CogAT level your child will take depends on the age and grade of your student. Example: Level 8 is taken by a student who is 8 years old; typically the 3rd grader.

Below are the CogAT levels and corresponding school grades.

8 2 8

What is on the CogAT test?

At each level (grade), the CogAT assesses students’ learned reasoning and problem solving skills based on quantitative, verbal and non-verbal batteries. The 3 batteries may be administered separately.

Sequential, inductive, and quantitative reasoning abilities are assessed on the CogAT test. These reasoning abilities develop and change over a student’s school life time and are good for interpreting school success.

CogAT scores for each level are reported separately.  A CogAT practice test is the best way to understand the format and question types on the test.

Having your child tutored for the CogAT may seem to you as a waste. However, eTutorWorld’s CogAT online Prep Program can help your child get an edge over her peers when being screened for a gifted program entry.

Is the CogAT an IQ test?

No. CogAT is not an IQ test. The CogAT is a cognitive ability test that helps teachers measure students’ achievement and hence design the learning path for each student. A student’s individual battery scores and Standard Age Scores [SAS] help understand and compare the difference in abilities and achievement levels in comparison to other students of the same grade.

Why is the CogAT important?

CogAT is a cognitive aptitude test that assesses verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative reasoning abilities in K-12 students. It is used:


  1. To identify giftedness
  2. To understand students’ cognitive strengths and weaknesses
  3. To prepare a strategy to teach according to a student’s learning style, eventually helping each student achieve academic success
  4. To assist schools placing students according to their abilities
  5. To help estimate a student’s future academic success

Does my student need CogAT test prep help?

The CogAT is essentially an aptitude test to assess a student’s quantitative, verbal n non verbal abilities. It is very different from other achievement tests. Hence, prepping for the CogAT can help in more ways than one. Other than getting a better CogAT score, a CogAT practice test helps your student get familiar with the CogAT format and question types.

As most school districts use CogAT scores to identify gifted students, with CogAT test prep, your child will have a better chance of getting recognized for academic excellence.
