Practice Questions for the SCAT Test

posted by

Parents often scramble to find practice questions for the SCAT test, which is also known as the School and College Ability Test. This test is given to kids who are being considered for the Center for Talented Youth, or CFY, at Johns Hopkins. The test includes a quantitative section and a verbal section; each one has 55 questions. Five questions from each section are “experimental,” meaning that they don’t count toward the child’s final score. Each section takes 22 minutes to complete.

The test, which is given to kids in second through twelfth grade, is known as an “above-grade test,” meaning that kids actually take a test designed for children in grades higher than their own. This is important to keep in mind when finding practice questions for the SCAT test.

Here’s how this breaks down on the test:

Kids who are in the second and third grade take the Elementary Level SCAT test. This test has questions designed for kids in the third through sixth grade.

Children in the fourth and fifth grade take the Intermediate Level SCAT test, with questions designed for kids in the sixth through ninth grade.

Kids in sixth grade or older take the Advanced Level SCAT test, with questions designed for kids in ninth through twelfth grade.

If your child will be taking the SCAT test, you’ll need to find practice questions for the SCAT test that match up to the test they’ll be taking. Because the test is an above grade-level test, it’s very difficult even for the smartest kids, so you’ll need to begin preparing as soon as possible. It’s a good idea to start with questions below your child’s grade level; this is obviously a bit easier for kids taking the Intermediate or Advanced level, since you can practice with the questions directly below that level. In any event, practice questions for the SCAT test are critical to ensuring your child is successful on the exam.
