About the OLSAT Level A

The OLSAT Level A is the first OLSAT Test level and is typically administered to students in Pre-K and kindergarten. The OLSAT Level A tests the verbal and nonverbal skills of young children and is often used as a tool when considering admission to gifted schools and gifted programs. In the OLSAT Level A there are a lot of questions which involve pictures, figures, and patterns, reflecting how children learn and think at this age.

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.

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. 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.

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.

While practicing, the instructions of each question should be read aloud (once) to the child, as is done on the actual OLSAT Test. For your convenience, TestPrep-Online currently provides audio instructions for the following question types: Following Directions, Aural Reasoning, Arithmetic Reasoning.
