1) Quantitative Battery: Number Puzzles

Number puzzles on the CogAT typically assess a student’s quantitative reasoning skills. For a 7th grader, these puzzles may involve various mathematical operations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division, applied to a series of numbers. Students have to decipher the operations and apply them to solve the puzzle.

Example #1:

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

4 + 0.25 = 4 + ?4

a. 5       b. 4       c. 3       d. 2       e. 1


2) Non-Verbal Battery: Figure Classification

CogAT Figure Classification is a type of cognitive assessment question that evaluates a student’s abstract reasoning abilities. This type of question assesses a student’s ability to identify patterns, relationships, and similarities among various geometric figures.

In the CogAT Figure Classification subtest, the child examines three figures on the left with a specific relationship. The child then selects an answer on the right that mirrors the relationship found in the initial three figures. As the questions become more challenging, the three figures appear at the top, and the answer choices are presented below, following the same reasoning pattern.

Example #2:

Parent say to your child: 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.

Example #3:

Obnoxious is to pleasant as radiant is to ______.

A. dull       B. bright       C. loud       D. quiet       E. soft


4) Quantitative Battery: Number Series

CogAT Number Series questions assess a student’s ability to recognize and extend numerical patterns or sequences.  Number Series questions are to assess a student’s ability to think critically, recognize mathematical patterns, and apply logical reasoning to solve numerical problems. These questions can vary in complexity, with more challenging sequences involving multiple operations or more intricate 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 choose the number that comes next from the answer choices below.

153       116       122       153       116       ____

A. 120       B. 121       C. 122       D. 123       E. 124


5) Non-Verbal Battery: Paper Folding

CogAT Paper Folding questions assess a student’s spatial reasoning abilities, mental imagery, and understanding of geometric transformations. These questions can vary in complexity, with more advanced questions involving multiple folds and intricate patterns.

Example #5:

On the top row, you will see how a square piece of paper is folded sometimes once, sometimes twice, sometimes three times. Holes are then punched after the paper has been folded. Choose the answer in the second row that shows how the folded piece of paper would look after it is unfolded.
