# NNAT 2nd Grade Practice Test

## NNAT Test 2nd Grade Practice Test Sample Questions (Level C)

The NNAT (Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test) is a nonverbal test that is used to qualify kindergarten through 12th grade students for gifted and talented programs. The NNAT uses a nonverbal model for assessing students, as it utilizes shapes and figures to evaluate a student’s problem solving abilities. Similar to the OLSAT, the NNAT does not test a child on what he or she has learned in school, but instead, focuses on visual-spatial reasoning skills. The NNAT has become a  popular test for admissions into gifted and talented programs, as it is used across various school districts throughout the United States. The most recent version of the NNAT is the NNAT3 which includes 48 questions that are broken down into four distinct question types. These question types include:

• Pattern completion
• Reasoning by analogy
• Serial reasoning
• Spatial visualization

Children who are in the second grade will complete the Level C exam which includes the reasoning by analogy, pattern completion, serial reasoning and spatial visualization questions. Unlike the Level A and B exams, students completing the Level C exam will come across spatial visualization questions. These questions require the students to identify how two or more designs would look when they are put together. In other scenarios, the student would have to determine how a design would look after it is folded, rotated or altered in some way. Below are several sample questions that are intended for the second grade level. Each practice question will reflect a specific category of questions that your child will come across.

### 1.) Pattern Completion

Parent say to your child: “Look at the puzzle.” Point to the empty box and say, “Something is missing.” Point to the answer choices and say, “which of these answer choices goes here?” Point back to the empty box when you say “here.”

### 2.) Reasoning by Analogy

Parent say to your child: Look at the figures on top. They go together in some way. Choose a figure from the answer row that goes with the figure(s) on the bottom the same way the figures on top go together.

### 3.) Serial Reasoning

Parent say to your child: Look at the boxes across the rows and up and down the columns. Do you see ow they are related to each other? Can you find the answer that goes in the empty box so that the design inside the rows and columns follow a pattern?

### 4.) Spatial Visualization

Instructions: Start on the recommended item for your child’s age. Show your child the three pictures across the top (and sometimes middle) row. Say, “Look at the first two pictures. When you combine them, they create the third picture.”

### 5.) Pattern Completion

Parent say to your child: “Look at the puzzle.” Point to the empty box and say, “Something is missing.” Point to the answer choices and say, “which of these answer choices goes here?” Point back to the empty box when you say “here.”
