OLSAT Level C
January 8th, 2013
OLSAT level is for second grade
Administered to children in the second grade, the OLSAT level C test is a very useful tool for teachers, administrators and parents alike. This examination is intended to measure aspects of learning not typically covered in many schools, such as verbal comprehension and problem solving abilities. Level C is administered in two formats; part of the test is read aloud to students, while the other parts are worked independently.
If you are seeking to help your child prepare for an upcoming OLSAT level C test, you can visit http://www.brighthubeducation.com/student-assessment-tools/2577-what-is-the-otis-lennon-school-ability-test/ for an overview of the test itself. The OLSAT, which stands for Otis-Lennon School Abilities Test, is a difficult test, and is challenging for children no matter what their age. The material on the test is substantively difficult, and also mixed up so that children encounter different kinds of questions in a randomized order that forces them to think on their feet.
Materials for test prep are available at a variety of retailers, with packages specific to each of the different levels.
The OLSAT level C is used for several purposes. If you are attempting to enroll your student in a private school or advanced courses, the OLSAT may be used as part of an entrance examination process. The test is also commonly used to assess students’ progress as they move through grades. In some cases, areas for improvement are identified by the test, allowing administrators and teachers to collaborate on finding the best way to provide extra assistance.
As mentioned previously, Level C of the Otis-Lennon School Abilities Test is targeted toward children in the second grade. The OLSAT Level A is designed for children in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, and Level B is for children in the first grade. It can be helpful to practice questions slightly below your child’s level, just to get her comfortable with the format of the test.
