The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) is a nationally-normed assessment that measures general reasoning and problem solving skills. Results from the CogAT indicate how well a student uses these skills to solve verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal reasoning problems.
The CogAT goes beyond measuring the skills a student has learned in the classroom. It measures abilities developed from birth, through experiences during and outside the school. A student’s score on the CogAT primarily reflects his/ her ability to identify relationships between objects and numbers and to demonstrate flexibility in thinking.
