The OLSAT Test (the OtisLennon School Ability Test) is designed to access your childs performance across a wide variety of reasoning skill sets. It is an intelligence test that can be given in a group setting, so schools use it frequently to assess children for gifted and talented programs.
The Cognitive Abilities Test, or CogAT Test, is a cognitive test used by many school districts to qualify children for their gifted and talented programs, and getting a great score on it can have tremendous ramifications for your childs future. It is not an achievement test or an intelligence test. The test assesses reasoning and problem solving abilities in three key areas: 1) verbal, 2) math, and 3) non-verbal or spatial.
The Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test, or the NNAT test or the NNAT2 test, are nonverbal tests, which means that all the questions rely on shapes and figures instead of pictures or words. These tests assess a childs thinking and reasoning abilities as opposed to what he or she has learned in school.
