Naglieri Test May Level the Playing Field
posted by Karen Quinn, The Testing Mom - August 31st, 2011
The Naglieri Non-Verbal Abilities Test (NNAT) which is a unique test in its methods and assessment criteria is an assessment exam that may well bring stereotypes about gifted and talent students to an end. The NNAT shows profound results among all groups of students, regardless of sex, race, class or ethnicity. The NNAT, as a result, is gaining many more minority students access to gifted and talented programs that were previously out of their reach due to out-dated and biased assessment tools.
The Naglieri Non-Verbal Abilities Test is no less difficult or challenging than other assessment exams used to measure gifted and talented program admission criteria. In fact, the test is possibly more challenging than other exams and is one that students who take NNAT practice tests and use NNAT sample test questions can improve their chances of passing. That being said, there is no harm in taking these preparation measures.
