Information about CogAT& testing at Lower
Tuesday, October 1, 2019 5:15 AM

Each year, MPS screens students to identify Advanced Learners. All 2nd grade students are screened automatically while K, 1, 3 and 4 grade students may be referred for screening by a teacher, or parent/guardian. 
The screening process will include the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT7), an assessment of reasoning and problem-solving skills. In addition, your child’s Fall FAST results is part of the assessment.
This year, students will take the CogAT, between October 21 - November 8, 2019. If you have questions or are interested in your child being screened, please contact Jennifer Gottenborg.
