Purpose: To assess students’ reasoning abilities to provide guidance around instructional decisions and strategies

Age: Prep to Year 12

Administration: Group

By measuring three separate cognitive domains, the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) provides a broad perspective on a student by identifying strengths and weaknesses other instruments would miss.

The three cognitive domains include:

  1. Verbal reasoning abilities
  2. Quantitative reasoning abilities
  3. Non-verbal reasoning abilities

Key Features

  • High reliability and validity ensure educators can trust the results, even for high-stakes decision-making
  • ELL-friendly test construction provides equity and fairness
  • Unique Ability Profiles are linked to instructional strategies, enabling teachers to adapt instruction to each student’s learning preferences
  • Provides a reliable and valid measure when determining eligibility for gifted and talented programs
  • New Screening Form option offers shorter administration time for a quick data point
  • Maximises identification of students across all subgroup populations
  • Offers a choice of administration modes so that educators may select the option that best suits their needs
  • Greatly expanded ancillary resources provide opportunities for professional development and help to get the most out of testing
  • Attractive and colourful design engages students
  • Addition of more rigorous items at each level measures a broad range of abilities at each level.
  • CogAT results can be interpreted through Data Manager if schools use ACER’s test scoring services to mark the CogAT answer sheets. Data Manager allows teachers to produce customised reports for their student population. Download the CogAT Test Scoring order form here.
