NNAT 3rd-4th Grade Practice Test

NNAT Test 3rd-4th Grade Practice Test Sample Questions (Level D)

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 in third and fourth grade will complete the Level D exam, which has spatial visualization,  reasoning by analogy, serial reasoning and pattern completion questions. The Level D exam is slightly different from Levels A through C of the NNAT3. While these previous exams highlight questions from a specific grade, the Level D exam covers questions from 3rd through 4th grade. While a 3rd grade student is most likely to answer questions from his or her grade level correctly, he or she is encouraged to try their best when answering the more challenging items.  The NNAT orders each of question in order of increasing difficulty. As your child continues to complete the practice questions, he or she will begin to gain a better sense of the items that fall both in and outside of their grade level. This is especially helpful for the student, as he or she will have a better understanding of the questions that need more time, attention and practice. Below are several sample questions that are intended for the third through fourth grade level. Each practice question will reflect a specific category of questions that your child will come across.
