WFISD uses the CogAT test. Students in Kindergarten take a paper test, but those in grades 1-11 take an online version.The CogAT has three sections: Verbal (words and vocabulary), Quantitative (counting, patterns, and math facts), and Nonverbal (picture puzzles). To see what the questions look like, try an internet search for "CogAT sample items." But be careful! Some "practice" sites don't match the quality of the real test.GT PlacementAfter testing is complete, students and parents will be notified of placement.These results will be sent to schools and families on/around mid-April, 2020.
