Karen Quinn, the Testing Mom, was recently featured in a Chicago Tribune story pertaining to the gifted and talented testing in Chicago. The article talks about the secrecy behind this mysterious test given to pre-K children applying for the Chicago Public Schools gifted and talented program. As with NYC, many parents in Chicago hire private tutors and use other test prep activities to help their child score better on the challenging questions presented in tests like the OLSAT, Stanford-Binet and WPPSI – ERB. The article even has sample questions provided by TestingMom.com! We’re not 100% sure what gifted and talented test is given in Chicago but we do have a hunch! Remember that no matter what test your 4 to 7 year old child takes, the concepts your child needs to know are pretty much the same for all gifted and talented tests.
