Skill Matrix and Recommendations to Prepare for the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test®

OLSAT-8® Level E recommended for administration in Gr 4

 

Here are our suggestions in order for the typical highly capable child.  The first two are the most important. 

  • Building Thinking Skills for core verbal and non-verbal reasoning skills
  • Think Analogies or Thinkanalogy Puzzles for the nitty gritty on verbal analogies and lots of examples
  • Math Analogies for analogies using numbers and shapes
  • Spectrum Test Prep Grade 5 for examples of how questions might look on a test and general information on how to approach a multiple choice test (if your child is a good test taker you can pass on this one)
  • Creative Thinking Puzzles for a variety of puzzles playing with language and numbers
  • Mind Benders for logic 
  • Think-a-Minutes for practice solving a variety of puzzles using skills that will be tested and similar skills.  Learn to brainstorm and move on when you just can't see the answer.
  • Mathematical Reasoning if your child needs to work on core math concepts
  • Visual Mind Benders to challenge your child to solve a problem presented as a matrix
