CogAT 8th Grade Practice Test

The 8th grade CogAT can be viewed as a culmination of the skills that a student has developed throughout their early school career. The exam tests a student’s ability to solve quantitative, multi-step, math problems, that require focus and process of elimination. Additionally, subtests such as “Verbal Classification”, require that the student uses a “built-in” thesaurus to analyze relationships between words. Activities such as reading, vocabulary flashcards and exposure to conversation are all beneficial for verbal subtests. The Non-Verbal “Figure Matrices” Subtest also tests a student’s ability to view relationships, thought for figures, not words. This subtest requires that the student practice visual imagery, while identifying subtle changes amongst a series of items. Practicing these sets of questions that we offer on our site is an excellent way for your child to gain confidence with this section. Below are a series of sample questions that are similar to the ones that your child will see on the 8th grade CogAT.
