Which CogAT Level is Administered to 1st Graders?

The testing level of the CogAT Form 7 corresponds to the student’s age. This means that the CogAT Level 7 is designed for students who are seven-years-old and generally in 1st grade. The CogAT Level 7 is frequently administered to all 1st grade students.

The CogAT 1st grade is used to assess verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative abilities in children, though it focuses very little on verbal abilities. Students are not required to read on the CogAT 1st grade test. The test, comprised of images and figures, is administered by an instructor who reads the instructions aloud to the students. The students then select an answer from the answer choices, also comprised of images, for each question. In the optional Sentence Completion section, the sentence is read aloud by the instructor (in addition to the instructions) and the students select an image from the answer choices. Audio instructions are now available on TestPrep-Online for this section. This optional section is available in Spanish, making the CogAT useful for those students who do not speak English natively.

The questions on the CogAT Level 7 evaluate how well these students employ their reasoning skills to solve problems they haven't yet learned, as the material covered on the CogAT 1st grade test reflects material not yet covered in their academic careers. However, the questions are developmentally suitable level of 1st grade students.

"I really liked it. It felt similar to the real test. For example, I liked that the NNAT questions were blue and yellow, just like the real test. It was good practice and I can’t think of anything I would change."
