CoGat Testing for 7th Grade Next Week



September 8th seventh grade students will be taking the COGAT test.  According to the test publisher, “The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) measures students’ learned reasoning abilities in the three areas most linked to academic success in school: Verbal, Quantitative and Nonverbal. Although its primary goal is to assess students’ reasoning abilities, CogAT can also provide predicted achievement scores when administered with The Iowa Tests.

“While CogAT is well-suited to help educators make important student placement decisions, such as selecting students for Gifted and Talented programs, exclusive features such as the Ability Profile Score can be used to expand the educational opportunities of all students.

 “Reasoning abilities have substantial correlations with learning and problem solving, both in and out of school. CogAT’s measurement of three different content domains ensures that educators receive a balanced view of the child. Each level of CogAT offers three test batteries:

Verbal
Quantitative
Nonverbal

“CogAT is constructed with overlapping sets of items throughout the series. The overlap of items from level to level provides the user with a continuous, ascending scale of difficulty, which is the foundation of CogAT's superior score scale from Kindergarten through grade 12.”

6th Grade Milestones Reports

Milestone Score Reports for 6th grade students were distributed today. If your student did not receive a report, and attended a Cobb elementary school, please send an email to christopher.deane@cobbk12.org.  I will reach out to the previous school to see if the report is still there.  Students from outside of Cobb should contact the previous school to see if reports have been received.  Last year score reports from previous schools arrived as late as November.  All reports will be forwarded to students as we receive them.
