Universal Screening for 2nd Graders (All) and 7th Graders (who haven't been tested before)
Naglieri non-verbal ability test and CogAT online screening
Two types of cognitive assessments used in APS are the Naglieri Non-verbal Ability Test-Second Edition, referred to as the NNAT2, and the Cognitive Abilities Test, referred to as the CogAT.
CogAT is an online testing platform, and the Naglieri is administered by paper-pencil.
Like all norm-referenced assessments, training for correct and ethical administration occurs each year for all test administrators.
The testing window for the CoGAT screening for the 2018-19 school year is Oct 1 - Nov 16.
