What CogAT Level is Administered to 4th Graders?

The CogAT Form 7 is divided by age levels, therefore, the Level 10 is designed for 10-year-old students. Since 10-year-olds are generally in 4th grade, schools often administer the CogAT Test Level 10 to all students in 4th grade.

The CogAT 4th grade is frequently used as an assessment tool for gifted program admissions. The test is used to evaluate verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative abilities. Since much of the CogAT is nonverbal, it is very useful for assessing students who are not native English speakers. It is also an exceptionally effective method used to measure relative academic strengths and weaknesses.

Once students reach the age of ten, they have mastered several of the academic skills learned in previous years, and are capable of understanding more complex questions. The CogAT Level 10 thus has a more difficult format than the lower levels (5/6-8), consisting of more verbal items in the place of pictures and images. It is important for 4th grade students to be well-prepared to be able to resolve challenging verbal questions found on the Level 10.

Test Format and Content

In total, the CogAT Level 10 contains 176 questions. All levels of the CogAT contain three batteries: the Verbal Battery, the Quantitative Battery, and the Nonverbal Battery. These batteries can be administered separately or together, depending on the specific needs of the school or teacher administering the test. Each battery contains three smaller subtests, for a total of nine subtests. See the complete breakdown of the test in the table below:
