The CogAT is an asssessment for students in grades K-12 that was co-developed with the Iowa Assessments. There are three batteries: verbal, quantitative, and non-verbal. The CogAT can be used to differentiate instruction and identify strengths and weaknesses. Each test takes 15 minutes or less to administer, and can be offered in English and Spanish.
