The CogAT measures reasoning abilities and how well a child figures out problems. There are nine sections on the CogAT; three verbal, three nonverbal, three quantitative. The test focuses on critical thinking and logic, not rote memorization. We’ve found that with exposure to critical thinking and logic based questions, children can strengthen problem solving skills, and start to feel more comfortable with these questions. Our tutors focus on these skills and help students learn how to apply these strategies to assignments for school, as well as preparing them for the AAP test.
