Excellent service! I bought a MAP pack and wrote to ask about grade differences. TestPrep-Online quickly responded with an extensive list of points. I greatly appreciated this service. They went above and beyond!
Malene
Worth it. My son was taking the CogAT Level 5/6 for school and with help from the practice tests, he scored well and was able to get into the county's gifted program. Thank you so much.
Oliver
We got the CogAT practice tests for our daughter. She nailed the test and I would totally recommend TestPrep-Online to other parents.
Jonathan
We used the CogAT practice tests and I would definitely recommend it to other parents. I liked that my child had both the timed and step-by-step options when taking a practice test.
Lisa
I am really happy with my MAP preparation purchase. My boys scored in the 99 percentile for 2nd and 5th grade!
Rebecca
My son was preparing for CogAT Level 9. With practice, my son got used to the question styles and the practice built his confidence with the exam. Once kids know they can do well, there is no limit – they will always do their best. I have recommended TestPrep-Online to all my friends.

About the PLANO ISD PACE Program

The Plano Academic and Creative Education (PACE) Program is a course designed to challenge exceptionally talented students and help them realize their skills and abilities.

The course can continue for several years, starting from kindergarten and continuing all the way up to high school. As students progress through the academic ladder, they receive more and more PACE time, starting with 30 minutes a week and eventually becoming a daily course.

The course is there to cultivate above-average cognitive abilities and personal growth for each and every one of the students. With this course students are able to delve into literature, history, and culture through a unique, intersubjective lens. Read more about the course here.

How to Prepare for the PLANO ISD PACE Test

To get accepted into the PACE Program students are required to display high skills through academic grades and standardized testing.

The CogAT is the main test used for PACE testing. PLANO ISD administers the CogAT to grades 1, 3, 5, and 7 as well as students applying to the PACE Program.

Remember: Since PACE classes are designed to maintain a small number of students, admission goes to the students who show the highest abilities and possess the highest CogAT scores. Therefore, it is highly important to practice, practice, practice before the exam.
You can read more about the PACE Program on the Official Plano Website.

About the PLANO ISD Honors Program

The Honors program offers a student the opportunity to fully fulfill his or her academic potential. Starting 6th grade, students can receive advanced course work in math and later, in 7th and 8th grade advanced course work in math, English, and science. Read more about Plano ISD's Middle School Honors Program here.

How to Prepare for the PLANO ISD Honors Test

The Honors Program, like the PACE Program, is a competitive program, which requires specific grades on the STAAR, MAP, and CogAT, depending on a student’s grade level and the advanced course s/he is applying for:
