My son was preparing for CogAT Level 9. With practice, my son got used to the question styles and the practice built his confidence with the exam. Once kids know they can do well, there is no limit – they will always do their best. I have recommended TestPrep-Online to all my friends.
We got the CogAT tests for my daughter. I loved how quickly I was able to access the tests after purchasing the product and how easy it was to use! It familiarized my daughter with the format of the test, allowing her to feel calm for the test.
We used the CogAT practice pack. The questions in this study pack were very similar in style to what appeared on the actual test. I would definitely recommend this product to other parents.
The CogAT test pack provided my son with challenging questions, which prepared him to perform well on the test.
My 3rd grade daughter was recommended to take the CogAT. We loved the explanations as they helped her to understand the material. The packs are a helpful tool and less expensive than a private tutor.
Worth it. My son was taking the CogAT Level 5/6 for school and with help from the practice tests, he scored well and was able to get into the county's gifted program. Thank you so much.

CogAT 4th Grade Format & Sections

The CogAT 10 test is divided into different sections known as batteries: Verbal battery, Nonverbal battery, and Quantitative battery. These batteries feature the following topics: Picture/Verbal analogies, Sentence Completion, Picture/Verbal Classification, Number Analogies, Number Series, Number Puzzles, Figure Matrices, Figure Classification, and Paper Folding. Each of these subtopics help develop a different skill and it is important to see all the different types of questions, their solutions, and the explanations to avoid having any surprises the day of the test. 

The primary levels of the CogAT focus more on picture analogies and picture classification instead of their verbal equivalents. This is to make the questions more intuitive and easier to solve for children that are still learning to read. 

CogAT Grade 4 Scores

There are two norms used by the CogAT when scoring results. One of the norms, the age norm, is used to compare the performance in relation to other children of the same age. The CogAT also returns a raw score, which is later transformed into a Standard Age Score (also known as SAS).  

CogAT 4th Grade Sample Questions

The following questions in this CogAT 4th grade practice test are written in the format of the CogAT and serve as practice to locate the areas that need strengthening as well as familiarize yourself with the contents of the exam.

[1] Think about how the words in the top row go together. Which word in the bottom row fits best with the words in the top row?


[2] Which number goes in the square with the question mark?


[3] Look at the top row. See how the paper is folded and changed. Fill in the circle under the picture that shows how the paper looks when it is opened.


[1] Choice 2 – The correct answer is bishop. These are all examples of pieces on a chess board.

[2] Choice 1 – The correct answer is 5. The first thing to notice when solving this type of question is that both sides of the equation must be equal. Since we are trying to solve for the '?', we must get it by itself on one side of the equation. To do this we must subtract 7 from both sides: 2 × 6 − 7 = ? + 7 − 7. Our new equation is: 2 × 6 − 7 = ?. Now solve for '? ‘, since: 2 × 6 = 12 and 12 − 7 = 5, the correct answer is 5.

[3] Choice 3

– First the paper was folded diagonally from the upper-left corner to the lower-right corner. Then it was folded again from the lower-left corner to the upper-right corner. Then 3 holes in different shapes were punched out. Therefore, when the paper is unfolded the holes will mirror each other across the diagonals of the page. To solve this question, look for the answer choices in which the holes do not mirror each other in the right way. The 2nd and 4th choices can be eliminated in this way. Next, concentrate on the area of each remaining answer choice that appears in the rightmost frame of the question series (in this case the triangular area on the right side) and eliminate all choices that are different. The 1st choice can be eliminated as the circular hole is under the pentagon hole but should be above it. The 5th choice can also be eliminated as the pentagon has been rotated. We are left with the 3rd choice as the only correct answer.
