Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Quick Facts

The Cognitive Abilities test is designed to help us evaluate how students understand and solve problems. The CogAT measures thinking skills developed in and out of school and how well a child can use these skills to solve verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal problems.

The VERBAL tests measure reasoning, making inferences and judgments, problem solving, oral vocabulary and verbal comprehension.

The QUANTITATIVE test measures abstract reasoning and math ability, (including relationships between objects number concepts, and story problems.)

The NONVERBAL test measures general abstract reasoning. This includes seeing visual similarities and differences, drawing inferences, and applying rules to visual patterns.

The COMPOSITE Score gives an overall measure of a student’s thinking abilities, including all three of the above tests.

There are nine sub-tests with two restroom breaks built in.
