Bracken School Readiness Assessment and Admittance to Gifted Programs
posted by Karen Quinn, The Testing Mom - September 30th, 2011
The Bracken School Readiness Assessment (BRSA) Test is used by many schools to determine how prepared preschoolers are for entering kindergarten. The test serves other purposes as well. When combined with other IQ and abilities assessment exams, the BRSA test is a useful tool in identifying students in need of special attention.
Students who need more help in order to reach “standard” levels of rational thinking, reasoning ability, or general learning skills can be identified with BSRA practice tests. BSRA sample test questions are commonly used to get a feeling for student abilities and to help determine where their strengths and weaknesses may lie.
The BSRA Test is also commonly used to determine if young children should spend at least a portion of their day in gifted courses that will help them remain engaged in school and will further build on their “advanced” skills and abilities.
