How to Prepare for the OLSAT

Preparing for the OLSAT Level A test is important. If your child is familiar with the test, the better s/he will perform on the exam. Help your child prepare with TestPrep-Online's practice pack, which includes OLSAT Level A sample tests. Our practice packs include full-length OLSAT sample tests, additional practice questions, as well as the OLSAT Video Academy for Premium packs and selected levels.

OLSAT Test Format

Children in pre-k take an OLSAT Test with 40 questions (16 verbal and 24 nonverbal) to complete while children in kindergarten take a test with 60 questions (30 verbal and 30 nonverbal) to complete. Both student in pre-k as well as those in kindergarten are provided with 77 minutes to complete the OLSAT Test. 

Most commonly, the OLSAT Level A for pre-k-k is administered to children one-on-one. Since at the age of five and six children are still developing their reading and writing skills, OLSAT Test administrators will read the directions, examples and test questions aloud to students. The content of the OLSAT Level A will be read aloud only once, therefore, it is important that your child be familiar with OLSAT Level A test questions.

Tips for Strengthening OLSAT Scores

The OLSAT Level A scores are measured across other students within the same three-month age group (i.e., students born on January 30th through April 30th of the same year are compared to one another), as the rapid cognitive growth that occurs during this age group is significant.

  • Make sure to go over each and every question type. Even if your child already knows how to solve picture classification questions, it is still important to go over them, as the questions on the actual test vary in difficulty and your child might come across a particularly difficult one and have no tools to solve it.
  • Find out as much as you can about the test. Read our OLSAT FAQ page and consult with your child's teachers.
  • Start with our free sample questionsGoing over them will give you and your child a taste of the real test and what to expect.
  • Be there for your child. Since preschoolers are very young, it is vital to assist them while they prepare for the test. However, it is equally important to teach them how to work alone, since you will not be there during the actual test. Therefore, the best advice is to be there for them but only walk them through the first questions, and then let them try alone.
  • Help your child manage his or her time correctly. While it is important to go over all types of questions, it is also important to focus on those subjects your child is having difficulties with and make sure to go over all available questions thoroughly.
  • Always read the explanations. Even if your child solves a question correctly, it is still necessary to read the explanation. Our tests provide a detailed explanation for each and every question. Make sure your child reads them, because they may include details he or she is not familiar with. Sometimes, a child may answer correctly but not know why this is the correct answer; it is vital to know why!
  • Provide nutritious food. Studies have shown that children who eat nutritious food achieve better results at school. Therefore, it is also important to make sure your child eats well at home, before setting to prepare for the test.
