Gifted and Talented Test Prep
The process of applying your child to a gifted program can feel daunting.
You’re a busy parent who wants the best education for your child. Figuring out dinner for the night can feel like enough of a challenge.
Nobody understands this issue better than us.
In fact, two busy parents realized the lack of guidance for gifted and talented test prep back in 2010. These two parents ultimately became the founders of TestingMom.com.
We have helped thousands of parents – like you – achieve early education goals for their children.
You’re in the right place.
More than a practice test. This is gifted testing prep done right.
Practice tests are great (we sell a few workbooks ourselves), but they are a small piece of the puzzle.
TestingMom.com excels at offering a comprehensive, fun, worry-free prep experience. The foundation of our program includes:
- Online practice questions
- Printable worksheets
- Original interactive games
- Parent Success Team
- Skill-Building Academy
No matter what you call it – gt prep, g&t test prep, tag testing, highly capable – they all revolve around the same tests.
The Testing Mom formula has proven effective in increasing acceptance odds by 100%.

How we do practice questions
TestingMom.com prides itself on providing you with the flexibility to prep how you want.
As we continue to progress towards a digital-first world, TestingMom.com has adapted. The majority of our customers want prep in a digital format.
We adamantly agree.
Our Digital Tutor provides questions in an online format to fulfill this need.
After a practice session, your child will receive a score report. These reports provide insight on what types of questions your child needs to work on.
Additionally, these reports track your child’s progress over time.
However, there is also a lost art for the trusty pencil and paper.
Writing stimulates a different part of the brain. Particularly, it builds visual-spatial skills. These skills happen to be an important component of many gifted tests.
This is why it’s important to have your child practice in different mediums.
Practice questions can also become boring for children after several sessions. We provide fun, interactive, and educational games to combat this “preparation-dread.” Examples of our online test prep games are below.
You’re busy. We get that; and TestingMom.com provides the flexibility to prepare in a way that meets your needs at any moment.

Tell us about your experiences
Looking to prepare my kid in kindergarten for Talented and gifted program testing in Texas. What is the test called and do you offer material for kindergarten for this specific test?
Each school district sets their own testing standards for gifted programs so I can’t say for certain which test it will be. The CogAT is the most popular test and it would likely be that. Houston ISD uses the CogAT in combination with the ITBS.
We have materials for both of these tests and dozens of others. We will definitely have you covered.
Email our Parent Success Team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they can help you figure out which test to prepare for.
And howdy from Texas. Our headquarters are in DFW. 🙂
I am looking for my 2nd and 5th graders GT prep for Fbisd in Texas, please suggest which course shd I chose.
Fort Bend uses the CogAT. Both of our memberships include access to the CogAT for all grade levels, so both of your children could use the same account.
The main difference between the memberships is Fast Track Extra includes one-on-one tutoring sessions with one of our expert tutors.

Hi, I am a lifetime member but I am not able to access any tests.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We live in St.Louis, Missouri. My daughter is in Kindergarten, she took the STAR test and she is going to get tested for her IQ test. They said they are going to start giving her KOI coaching before the IQ test. We were hoping to teach her at home as well, do you have KOI coaching and IQ preparation for the gifted and Talented Program?
Hi Remya –
The KOI (Kingore Observational Inventory), is a checklist that teacher’s use to assess different qualities in kids that indicate giftedness. It isn’t a traditional “test” where children are asked questions that they have to answer. Instead, the teacher observes and rates the child on different abilities.
We do have many sections for IQ Tests, it’s simply a matter of figuring out which test your daughter will be given. If you’ll email us at email@example.com, our Parent Success Team will be more than happy to help you!
All the best,
I am looking to prepare my 4th and 7th grade children for G/T test, I already became a member. so, what do I do.

All the best,
