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.
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.
We got the CogAT practice tests for our daughter. She nailed the test and I would totally recommend TestPrep-Online to other parents.
We used the CogAT practice tests and I would definitely recommend it to other parents. I liked that my child had both the timed and step-by-step options when taking a practice test.
Very helpful! I used the MAP 4th grade practice pack and the practice questions were very close to what the actual test was like. I passed with flying colours.

4th Grade MAP Test Scores

MAP tests are graded using the Rasch-Unit scale (RIT). The RIT scale functions as an equal-interval scale that measures each student’s abilities regardless of grade level. This measuring system can be compared to a ruler, in that the difference between each two RIT scores remains the same regardless of whether they are on the top or the bottom of the scale. Ultimately, the purpose of the scale is to provide parents, teachers, and students alike the opportunity to see how much they have progressed academically.
