SCAT 6th – 8th 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 sixth through eighth grade take the Advanced Level, which has questions that are designed at the ninth through twelfth grade level of achievement. This is because the SCAT traditionally tests above the student’s current grade level. Below are several SCAT sample questions that are intended for the Advanced Level. Each practice question will reflect a specific section that your child will come across.

Hello,

If I become a member, how many sets of SCAT test for 6-8th graders (or up? my child is a 9th grader) can I have access to? Do you also provide answer keys?

Thanks.
