About the NYC G&T Test Level B

NYC Gifted and Talented programs are specifically designed to cater to the needs of gifted children. These programs provide gifted students with an advanced education at an accelerated rate. Since gifted programs contain limited spots, they utilize assessments to determine eligibility for these programs. As a result, the NYC Department of Education developed the NYC Gifted and Talented Assessment. This test is offered in a majority of New York City's 32 districts, and is generally used as an admissions tool for gifted programs. 

The NYC Gifted and Talented Test Level B is generally administered to students in 1st Grade, for entry into 2nd grade. This test is composed of parts from two other gifted assessments: a verbal section made up of questions from the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT), and a nonverbal section made up of questions from the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT).

NYC gifted programs have become increasingly competitive. Initially, children who scored at or above the 97th percentile were eligible for admittance into a gifted program. However, in recent years, some programs have been unable to grant admission to students who scored in the 99th percentile! Competition for spots in NYC gifted programs is at an all-time high. Preparing your child for the NYC Gifted and Talented Test is essential. Learn more about how the NYC G&T Test is scored.

NYC G&T Test Format

The NYC Gifted and Talented Test Level B contains 30 questions from the OLSAT, and 48 questions from the NNAT. The test uses verbal questions from the OLSAT and nonverbal questions from the NNAT. The verbal and nonverbal sections of the test are weighted equally, with each accounting for half of the total test score. All questions on the test are multiple choice. See the table below for the specific question types used on the Level B NYC Gifted and Talented Test.

The questions in the verbal section of the test will be read aloud once during the test. It is important that your child be familiar with the test questions, as s/he will only hear the question one time.

When practicing for the NYC G&T Level B, the instructions of the verbal questions should be read aloud (one time) to the child, as is done on the actual test. For your convenience, TestPrep-Online currently provides audio instructions for the following question types: Following Directions, Aural Reasoning, Arithmetic Reasoning.

"I liked the online format and that it allowed for interactivity. The content was great in helping my child prepare for the test, and I would totally recommend it to other parents."

"Overall, I liked the structure of the questions and the option to use the tests in timed or step-by-step mode. 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!"
