The Verbal battery consists of picture analogies, sentence completion, and picture classification.

Picture Analogies

Picture Analogies assess a child’s ability to make use of a 2×2 matrix with 3 pictures and 1 empty cell. Students are required to examine the 2 pictures on top in order to determine the point of relation. The optimal approach to this question is to start by looking at the picture on the bottom row. The objective is to ensure that the three pictures on the bottom have a similar relationship to the pictures on top.

Sample Question: Look at the shapes in the top two boxes. Do you see how they go together in a certain way? Now look at the shapes on the side. Which shapes go with the shapes on the bottom row the same way that the shapes in the top row go together?

2- the top and bottom triangles flip over

Sentence Completion

During this section, students are required to listen to a sentence or question and select the picture that best satisfies the sentence or answers the question.

Sample Question: Choose the word that best completes the sentence below.

Answer- B

Picture Classification

This section on picture classification requires that the student examine 3 pictures on top, in order to determine how they are alike. Then, they must choose the 1 picture on the bottom that belongs in the same group. This section is composed of 14 questions and takes approximately 14 minutes to complete.

Sample Question: Look at the pictures on top. They are alike in some way and so they belong together. Choose one picture from the bottom row that belongs with the pictures on top.

Answer – Police siren

Hi, I have noticed that I don’t do as well in the verbal parts of the CogAT test and I was wondering if there was a way to practice one section or battery alone.

Yes, we have CogAT practice test questions for each battery, including verbal! The verbal section of the CogAT assesses a student’s ability to understand and manipulate language, as well as their ability to reason and problem-solve using words.

If you are looking to improve your performance on the verbal section of the CogAT, here are a few tips that may help:

Read regularly: Reading comprehension is a key component of the verbal section of the CogAT. Reading regularly can improve your vocabulary, comprehension, and critical thinking skills. Try to read a variety of texts, including fiction, non-fiction, and academic texts.

Practice analogies: The verbal section of the CogAT includes analogies, which test your ability to recognize relationships between words. Practice working with analogies by finding examples online or in study guides and working through them.

Improve your vocabulary: A strong vocabulary can help you better understand and manipulate language, which is crucial for success on the verbal section of the CogAT. Consider using flashcards or a vocabulary app to expand your vocabulary.

Take practice tests: Practicing with CogAT-style questions can help you become more familiar with the format and types of questions you will see on the actual test. You can find practice tests and sample questions online or in study guides.

Work with a tutor or teacher: If you are struggling to improve your performance on the verbal section of the CogAT, consider working with a tutor or teacher who can provide personalized instruction and feedback.

Remember, improving your performance on the verbal section of the CogAT takes time and practice. With dedication and effort, you can improve your skills and achieve success on the test.
