OLSAT 1st Grade Practice Test
OLSAT® Test 1st Grade – Level B
The OLSAT test Level B is intended to target children for entry into a gifted and talented program by providing important insight to parents and educators regarding learning abilities and skills. Most tests that are given are intended to test universally taught skills such as math, reading, science etc. By contrast, this test determines comprehension and reasoning, thinking skills, math-based reasoning, quantitative reasoning and verbal comprehension.
The test is known to be broken down into seven different levels in which the first two levels are read aloud to the student while the higher levels are not. The results of this test can help determine whether a student will benefit best from an advanced school course or a gifted school course. In some cases the results of this test can help in identifying an aspect in which the child may require additional academic assistance.
Parents often inquire about the purpose of administering the OLSAT. The purpose of administering the Test Level B varies between different institutions. Many schools give the test as an admissions exam to their school. Other schools administer the exam after the student has already been accepted into their school in order to determine the child’s educational placement in their school. Additionally, there are also schools that apply the test repeatedly to analyze how the student is learning and progressing individually as compared to other students in their same age range.
