# SCAT 4th – 5th Grade Practice Test

## Test Structure

The SCAT is divided into two sections: Verbal and Quantitative. Each section has 55 questions, including 5 experimental questions that are not scored. The SCAT evaluates reasoning skills and does not directly test what a student has learned in school.

• Verbal Section: This section tests a student’s understanding of vocabulary and verbal reasoning skills through verbal analogies. Students are given a pair of words that are related to each other in some way and are then presented with another word and a list of options. They must choose the word that best completes the analogy.
• Quantitative Section: This section evaluates mathematical reasoning skills through quantitative comparisons. A relationship between two quantities is presented, and students must find a similar relationship from the provided options.

Each section of the test lasts for about 22 minutes, with a 10-minute break between sections. The total testing process, including administrative tasks, takes around 1 hour.
