Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT)

The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) is used as a universal screener for all second graders in Jeffco.

This universal screener is a way to identify exceptional potential and talent among all populations at a given grade level, including English language learners, students with special needs and those who may not be achieving on other traditional academic measures. Using a universal screener is considered a best practice in the field of gifted education.

Jeffco typically administers the CogAT to second graders in October.

Length of test: 90 minutes

Required by: State and district (Gifted and Talented department)
