IOWA and CogAT Testing for Grades 1, 3 & 5

From September 13-15, 2016, students in first and third grades will take the Cognitive Abilities Test, and from September 16-21, 2016 students in third and fifth grades will take the Iowa Assessments™.

About the Iowa Assessments and Cognitive Abilities Test

The Iowa Assessments and Cognitive Abilities Test help determine how students are performing on nationwide standards. The Cognitive Abilities Test measures students’ learned reasoning abilities in three areas that closely relate to success in school; verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and nonverbal reasoning.

How your child can prepare for test taking—and what you can do to help

A student who is well rested and well fed and has a positive attitude about testing is best prepared for testing. You can help your child do his or her best by considering these tips:

  • Make sure that your child is in school and on time on test days.
  • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before each day of testing.
  • Remind your child that these tests are only one measure of what he or she has learned. Emphasize that you have confidence in his or her ability to do the best job possible.
  • Remind your child to listen to the directions and read each question carefully during testing. Encourage your child to ask the teacher for help if he or she does not understand the directions.
