Assessment Description - CogAT

Cognitive Abilities Test
 
Purpose: To provide a description of the student’s own cognitive resources for learning. CogAT measures general reasoning and problem-solving skills and indicates how well the student uses these skills to solve verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal problems. It provides a picture of the student’s reasoning strength and weakness.

Verbal Battery: The Verbal Battery is comprised of three subtests: Verbal Analogies, Verbal Classification, and Sentence Completion.  This series of subtests evaluate deductive and inductive reasoning skills as well as flexibility, fluency and adaptability in working with verbal material and solving verbal problems.

Nonverbal Battery: The Nonverbal Battery is comprised of three subtests: Figure Matrices, Paper Folding, and Figure Classification.  The items on these subtests use only geometric shapes and figures that call for novel problem-solving strategies.

Quantitative Battery: The Quantitative Battery is comprised of three subtests: Number Analogies, Number Puzzles, and Number Series.  These subtests evaluate deductive and inductive reasoning skills as well as flexibility and fluency in working with quantitative symbols and concepts.  The equation building subtest also evaluates the ability to organize, structure, and give meaning to an unordered set of numerals and mathematical symbols.
