Will the parents see the exam and her answers after the NYC gifted and talented test?
For the NYC Gifted and Talented Program OLSAT®, you do have the opportunity to review your child’s exam, but you must schedule a time to go to the Dept of Education (located downtown at 400 Chambers St., near the courthouse) to see it. They are very stringent about the appointment; you will only be allowed to see the exam in the ten minutes that are allotted to you once your scheduled time begins, so make sure to arrive on time. You cannot touch the exam, take notes, or photographs so try to remember everything you can. I highly recommend that you take the time to go review the exam, especially if your child is in the high 80’s, on the cusp of making it in, so that you can see what your child has missed and which areas they might need to improve in. Keep in mind that the NYC public school system has an agreement with Pearson, the publisher of the OLSAT® test, and that NYC schools have a special version of the test that is different from other versions.
