CogAT 2nd Grade Practice Test

The second grade CogAT expands upon the material found in the test for earlier grades, but also requires two new important skills that don’t actually have anything to do with the material on the test. Unlike Kindergarteners and 1st graders taking CogAT, second graders must read the question on the test, rather than listening to a proctor read it. The Verbal Analogy subtest challenges the student’s reading skills the most. Another change is for the sentence completion questions: the student is no longer shown figures or images; instead, the student is expected to fill in the appropriate word in the blank space.

Second graders also begin using a bubble sheet to record their answers for the CogAT. TestingMom.com offers sample bubble sheets for students to use in order to build a familiarity with this method of recording answers. That way, your child can focus on the material being tested, rather than how to actually take a test. Below are several CogAT sample questions that are intended for the 2nd grade level. Each practice question will reflect a specific subtest that your child will come across.
