CogAT® | BJU Press Testing & Evaluation

Order Practice Tests

Available year-round for grades 3–12, the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) consists of three batteries that provide separate scores for the following reasoning/learning abilities: verbal, quantitative (numerical), and nonverbal.

  • Verbal abilities covered include verbal classification, sentence completion, and verbal analogies.
  • Numerical abilities covered include quantitative relations, number series, and equation building.
  • Nonverbal abilities covered include figure classification, figure analogies, and figure analysis.

It is recommended to take the CogAT every two or three years. It may be ordered separately or combined with The Iowa Tests.

Combining achievement tests and learning ability tests will help you develop reasonable expectations for your student’s progress, based on his or her abilities. Once you discern whether your student is reaching his or her academic potential, you can understand how to tailor your teaching to your student’s learning style.
