Update from the NYC Gifted and Talented Testing Dates from the Department of Ed
posted by Karen Quinn, The Testing Mom - December 6th, 2011
Attention NYC Parents! The New York City department of education sent an update about the upcoming gifted and talented testing dates. The countdown has started so start preparing for the OLSAT and BSRA test today! Remember, if your child is 4 years old (pre-K) they will have answer 128 questions (yes, 128!). Kindergarten, first grade and second grade students will have 148 questions to complete for the test. Trust us, this test is not a walk in the park; it’s extremely difficult. Now’s the time to start working on your child’s test stamina, focus and making sure they have complete mastery over each of the sections for the NYC gifted and talented test.
According to the Dept of Ed. on the gifted and talented test dates:
- Private school and current Pre-K students will be notified of their test date by the Department of Education in mid-December.
- Public school students will receive notification of the test date from their school.
Remember, the OLSAT test results will be sent to parents some time in early May. We recommend you continue practicing with your child until the test results come in just to be on the safe side.
Tell us about your experiences
Does a child get tested on the current grade they are in, (kg. age 5/6)? Or do they get tested on the grade they will be in NEXT year?
