The Third grade CogAT builds on the second grade test, while also highlighting the more advanced nature of the questions. The “Verbal Classification” and “Sentence Completion” subtests are noticeably more difficult than the second grade test. These sections demand that a  student has developed a more expansive vocabulary, ability to understand synonym usage (particularly on the verbal classification subtest) and an ability to associate words with their related categories. Additionally, sections such as the “number analogies” subtest highlight subtle number relationships, while also requiring that the student add and subtract different numerical quantities. Examples of these specific skill sets will be demonstrated in the sample questions below:

Begin your preparation now by signing up for our complimentary set of 100 practice questions!

1) Quantitative Battery: Number Puzzles

In the CogAT Number Puzzles subtest, students are presented with problems that assess their understanding of mathematical relationships and their proficiency in arithmetic operations. As a result, this subtest challenges their mathematical reasoning and problem-solving abilities. These questions feature incomplete number puzzles. Consequently, students must carefully choose the correct option from the provided choices to successfully complete the puzzle. Overall, this subtest serves as a valuable measure of students’ quantitative reasoning abilities and their capacity to identify mathematical patterns.

Example #1:

In this section, you will be given a mathematical equation. Choose the answer that should replace the ? or the symbol.

16 – 13 = Ω

a. 4       b. 12       c. 3       d. 5       e. 7

2) Verbal Battery: Sentence Completion

The CogAT Sentence Completion subtest assesses students’ verbal reasoning skills and their ability to understand relationships between words and ideas. In this subtest, students encounter sentences with missing words and must choose the most appropriate words from provided options to complete the sentences meaningfully. As a result, this subtest gauges students’ vocabulary, comprehension, and their aptitude for grasping the logical structure of sentences.

Example #2:

Choose the word that best completes the sentence below.

The afternoon sky looked ______ because a storm was quickly approaching.

A.  happy          B.  sunny          C.  gloomy          D.  dank          E.  beautiful

3) Non-Verbal Battery: Figure Classification

The CogAT Figure Classification subtest evaluates students’ non-verbal reasoning skills, with a primary focus on their ability to recognize patterns and relationships among abstract shapes and figures. Within this subtest, students encounter a set of figures and are tasked with identifying the figure that completes the pattern or aligns with the given figures. Consequently, this subtest quantifies students’ spatial awareness, problem-solving capabilities, and critical thinking skills.

In the Figure Classification subtest, the child is shown 3 figures on the left that are related in some way. The child must choose an answer on the right that goes with the first 3 figures in exactly the same way. When the question get harder, the 3 figures are on the top and the answer choices are below, but the reasoning is the same.

Example #3:

The first 3 figures on the left (or, on top) relate to each other in some way. Find a figure to the right of the line (or, below the line) that goes with the first 3 figures in exactly the same way.

4) Quantitative Battery: Number Series

The CogAT Number Series subtest is another component of the Quantitative Battery, designed to assess students’ ability to recognize patterns and relationships among numbers. Students are given a series of numbers with one or more numbers missing.  Then, they must select the correct option to complete the number series. This subtest measures students’ numerical reasoning skills and their ability to identify and extend numerical patterns.

Example #4:

Look at the numbers in each row below. There is a rule that governs the order in which the numbers occur in the series. Figure out the rule and then chose the number that comes next from the answer choices below.

56       52       48       44       40       ___

A.  36      B.  35       C.  34       D.  33       E.  32

5) Verbal Battery: Verbal Analogy

The CogAT Verbal Analogy subtest evaluates students’ ability to identify relationships between words and concepts. In this subtest, students are presented with pairs of words that have a specific relationship. They are then given another word and a set of options, from which they must choose the word that has the same relationship with the given word as the original pair. This subtest measures students’ verbal reasoning skills, vocabulary, and comprehension of word relationships.

Example #5:

The first two words in the sentences below go together in a certain way. Choose the answer that goes with the third word in the sentence the same way that the first and second words go together.

Ear is to head as toe is to ____________.

A.  leg         B.  walk          C.  foot          D.  hand          E.  stand

1) C

2) C

3) C – even number of points

4) A – 36 (Subtract 4)

5) C
