By measuring students’ learned reasoning and problem-solving abilities in the three areas most linked to success in school, CogAT reveals a valid, broad view of their talents. With this knowledge, educators can make decisions that elevate each student’s academic experience.
Provide opportunities for English language learners to demonstrate ability.
Optimize opportunities for learning through CogAT's support for differentiation.
Perform a fast, reliable measure of abilities with the test's alternative screening form.
Measure Different Abilities
CogAT measures three separate domains - Verbal, Nonverbal, and Quantitative reasoning - to identify strengths and weaknesses missed by other assessments.
Superior technical quality means you can trust the results to help make high-stakes decisions.
Equivalent forms provide an opportunity for quicker and easier retesting. A new equivalent Form 8 offers fresh content, supports test security, and maintains enhancements made in Form 7.
Language Neutral Prompts
Forms 7 and 8 level the field for English language learners by reducing the language load throughout, using picture prompts at primary levels, and offering special scoring options.
A new screening form reduces testing time and gives an initial screening for large groups or incoming students.
Online or Paper
Choose paper-pencil or online testing, and then select paper or web-based reports
Built-in safeguards - secure browsers, session expiration, restricted access, secure logins, and confirmation of identity - ensure validity of results.
Printed ancillaries, online videos, and interactive materials provide guidance and support for educators.
“Educators can use CogAT for differentiating instruction in the regular classroom as well as identifying students that are going to excel in content areas like Math and English.”
Insight into abilities across three cognitive domains—Verbal, Quantitative, and Nonverbal—that aren’t fully measured by achievement tests can inform student instruction.
Research-based interpretations and comparisons of all students’ abilities with the most current standardizations and norms will help place students in the programs best suited to their needs.
Comprehensive ancillary materials give educators the guidance they need to make the most of the assessment data.
Areas of strength provide compelling profiles for each student and allow educators to plan personalized learning.
Test results highlight significant discrepancies between expected and actual student achievement so educators can see where students have gaps in learning.
