What is the CogAT?
The Cognitive Ability Test (CogAT) is a widely used group administered ability test. First developed and published in 1954 as the Lorge-Thorndike Intelligence test, it has been revised several times over the years to its current version: CogAT (Form 6). It is often used to identify gifted students and helps the parent understand their children’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses and learning styles. These tests can be administered by someone with at least a BA degree.

Supplemental Multi-page Instructions and Strategies Report!
An interactive website (www.cogat.com) can be accessed after doing the CogAT so that you can print out a report of teaching tips tailored especially to your child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses.(sample online supplemental strategies CogAT report.)
