About the OLSAT Level BThe OLSAT Level B is administered to children in 1st grade, who are typically six years old. The OLSAT is used by educators to measure verbal and nonverbal skills and is a popular tool which schools use to identify gifted children.
For many children, 1st grade is a transition period in which they move slowly from a world of play into a world of abstract concepts. Children are introduced to time, money, and other symbols and ideas. Questions on the OLSAT (1st grade entry) assess abstract processes such as ability to visualize certain situations, grasp main ideas, draw inferences, and predict outcomes. Additionally, pictorial reasoning questions are a large focus of the OLSAT Level B. For example, 1st graders will encounter questions in which they will need to select the picture that does not belong in a set of five pictures. Read more about OLSAT question types.
In Virginia Beach, VA, the OLSAT is administered to 1st grade students as part of the admissions process for gifted programs. Find out more about gifted testing in your school district.
