2022 Cognitive Abilities Testing (CogAT) Post Screener
This Fall, eligible 5th grade students will be invited to take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Post Screener. This 1.25 hour test measures students’ learned reasoning abilities through verbal/picture analogies, number analogies and figure matrices.
Currently, the main purpose for administering the CogAT Post Screener is to identify students for TAG in the area of intellectual ability and to qualify for the Summa program. The Summa program provides a differentiated, challenging curriculum that meets the cognitive, emotional, and social needs of highly gifted students in grades 6-8, while being sensitive to their developmental level.
For more information about TAG and Summa, please visit the BSD TAG page.
