OLSAT and GATE UPDATES
Testing will Resume when In-Class Attendance Resumes
Once a schedule for reopening schools is announced, we will reassess the capacity to schedule a 2020 OLSAT-8 3rd grade administration for school sites that were not able to test during the March 18-19, 2020 testing window. If we can move forward with a fall OLSAT-8 administration, a testing center drop-off timeline will be announced.
OTIS-LENNON SCHOOL ABILITY TEST
(All 2nd Graders will take this test )
The Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, Eighth Edition (OLSAT-8) achievement test is a nationally standardized, norm-referenced, group administered measure of verbal and non-verbal school abilities for gifted/talented identification. The OLSAT-8 is not an intellectual assessment but rather an achievement test that focuses on areas that are valid measures of an individual’s ability to reason logically, i.e., detecting likenesses and differences, recalling words and numbers, defining words, following directions, classifying, establishing sequence, solving arithmetic problems and completing analogies.
