CogAT nonverbal sample questions for kindergarten

Making sure your child’s cognitive development is on track is especially important during kindergarten. The gifted and talented program is one of the finest ways to make certain that your child is ready for the upcoming school year.

Your child can prepare for the exam by practicing questions from the verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal batteries on the Gifted CogAT Test Prep. We’ll talk about the kindergarten nonverbal battery in this blog.

CogAT nonverbal battery is used to assess executive functioning skills, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and future planning. CogAT nonverbal sample questions typically involve a variety of visual and picture-based tasks. Examples include matching pictures or shapes, completing patterns, and arranging them in order of size.

As mentioned above, the CogAT nonverbal test questions consist of mainly visual tasks and don’t involve reading. Figure matrices, paper folding, and figure classification are the three areas in the nonverbal battery. The sum of the CogAT nonverbal score is determined by these three sections.

Figure classification

Your young one will need to choose the right group of figures that have a particular characteristic in common. For example, he/she may be asked to name the collection of figures that are all quadrilaterals or the figure that best sums up the similarity.

Another scenario would be asking to locate the gap in a pattern or to solve a visual puzzle. Nonverbal questions are used to gauge your child’s capacity for original thought and problem-solving.

Paper folding

Your kid is required to predict what will happen to a sheet of paper that has been folded, sliced, or hole-punched, then unfolded. This section evaluates your child’s visual perception skills as well as their ability to spot patterns, distinguish similarities and differences, and create mental images.

Additionally, it assesses the capacity for inference and decision-making based on the visual information provided. Last but not least, it measures how logical your child is.

The CogAT paper folding section’s questions assist the little one build his/her attention to detail, capacity for pattern recognition, as well as concentration and focus levels. Additionally, it will help him or her express more freely and improve the capacity for abstract thought.

Overall, the CogAT nonverbal sample questions can provide an excellent way to assess kindergarten readiness and help identify any areas of cognitive weakness that may need to be addressed.
