Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) Primary Practice Questions (Pre K to Gr 2)
Thinking Skills for Tests contains 9 sections each with 12 questions formatted like the actual CogAT test. In addition to the questions the parent book contains ample information explaining the nine core thinking skills which are tested and language to use with your child if they get questions wrong to help them develop the necessary skills.
The CogAT is a protected test which means that the test publisher does not release copies of the test to anyone.
The CogAT comes in a number of different levels. The Primary Edition (levels K, 1 and 2) is administered orally and requires no reading skills. All the items are multiple choice with four pictorial answer choices. Students mark their answers directly on the test booklets by shading a bubble under the answer choice they select. The question paper the children see has no words on it. There are no time limits but because everything is read to the children the test administrator sets the pace. The test publisher suggests a total test administration time of approximately 3 hours with approximately 20 minutes spent on actual testing within each subtest.
