About the OLSAT Level CThe OLSAT Level C is the third OLSAT level and is targeted towards students in the 2nd grade. The OLSAT 2nd grade assesses verbal and nonverbal skills and is often used as an important admissions criterion when applying for private schools and for entry into advanced courses. Additionally, the OLSAT Level C is commonly used by schools to measure academic progress and assess students’ strengths and weaknesses.
Significant cognitive development occurs around the time a child reaches 2nd grade. Children start to master skills they have already learned and begin to engage with academic material profoundly. Independent learning is introduced and heavily practiced. Furthermore, 2nd graders engage in classification (the ability to group items according to features) and serial ordering skills (the ability to group according to logical progressions). The questions found on the OLSAT Level C reflect the skill sets typically found in children in the 2nd grade.
The OLSAT Test is often used in districtwide testing throughout a school district. For example, the OLSAT Level C is administered to all 2nd grade students in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Learn more about the OLSAT in the LAUSD. Additionally, you can search for gifted testing in your own school district.

OLSAT Test FormatYour 2nd grader will face 60 questions (30 verbal and 30 nonverbal) on the OLSAT Level C, with 72 minutes to complete the test. Since many children in the 2nd grade are able to read, only half of the OLSAT Level C questions are read aloud by a test administrator, while the other half of the OLSAT Level C is completed independently.
The instructions of each question should be read aloud (once) to the child when practicing for the test, 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.
