CogAT 3rd Grade Practice Test

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:
