CogAT: Preparing Your Child

CogAT: Preparing Your Child

posted by Karen Quinn, The Testing Mom - September 25th, 2012

While the CogAT is not a test which can be studied for like a spelling or math test, there are several things which you as a parent can do to help your child succeed. A very popular method is practice, and a free cognitive abilities test is a wonderful way to practice. These tests can be found many places throughout the internet. Even if the test doesn’t specify that it was designed for help with the CogAT, it can still help your child develop and fine-tune the skills which the CogAT tests.

Books are also available which address these skills, and these can be helpful for every age level. Look for titles which include the words “thinking skills,” “cognitive abilities” or “cognition.” Free practice questions can also be found online, and these are another great way to help your child succeed.

Is CogAt the same as the Naglieri 2 test?

No, they are very different tests. The NNAT test is entirely non-verbal.
