SCAT 2nd – 3rd Grade Practice Test

The SCAT Test (School and College Ability Test) is the primary exam used by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) for admissions into their program. Specifically, the test helps to identify 2nd-12th grade students for admissions into their gifted program. The SCAT is designed to measure math and verbal reasoning abilities. Depending on the grade level of the student, individuals will either take the Elementary Level, Intermediate Level or the Advanced Level. Children in the second through third grade take the Elementary Level which includes questions that are at the third through sixth grade level of achievement. This is because the SCAT traditionally tests above the student’s current grade level. Children at the Elementary Level can expect to be tested on both the verbal and quantitative sections. Below are several SCAT sample questions that are intended or the Elementary Level. Each practice question will reflect a specific section that your child will come across.
