What Is the CCAT?

The Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT) is a cognitive test that is often used for admissions to gifted programs throughout Canada. The test is published by Nelson Education.

The CCAT is the Canadian version of the CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test), which is given in the United States. The test has three sections, called batteries: the Verbal Battery, the Nonverbal Battery, and the Quantitative Battery. These batteries can be administered separately or together, depending on the specific needs of the school or teacher administering the test. The CCAT is administered to students in all grades K-12.

The CCAT is a long test, and the three batteries are often given in separate testing sessions, sometimes on different days. Administration time may vary, depending on how long the proctor takes to administer the test. Students are generally given between 30-45 minutes per battery. With administration time, it takes between two to three hours to complete all three batteries. In total, the CCAT has between 118 and 176 questions, depending on the level.

"Overall, I liked the structure of the questions and the option to use tests in timed or step-by-step modes. The drills were helpful and allowed me to assess my daughter's strengths and weaknesses. This product allowed my daughter to go into the test knowing what to expect. It was also great that I just needed to pay one time for a ten month license!"
