Otis-Lennon School Ability Test®
What is OLSAT? How is it conducted?
The Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) is a multiple choice test. It assesses children's reasoning ability. It is often being used by schools in the US as a part of the admission tests for academically advance programs.
The NYC public school system started using OLSAT to identify advance 4-7 years old children to enter the highly competitive Gifted & Talented Program (G&T Program) since 2006. In NYC, the OLSAT is conducted as a verbal test - the proctor reads the questions, the children mark the answers on the testing paper. Verbal Comprehension and Verbal Reasoning are the key areas in OLSAT.
Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test®
What is NNAT / NNAT-2? How is it conducted?
The Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test (NNAT second edition / NNAT-2) is a multiple choice test.
The NYC public school system replaced the BSRA exam with NNAT-2 in year 2012. The NNAT-2 is a reasoning assessment, which is significantly more challenging than the BSRA. It requires children to independently complete a testing paper with some puzzle-like questions. Unlike the OLSAT, there is no listening to the questions. Children are required to work on the questions at their own pace independently.
There are 4 key area of testing:
1. Pattern Completion
2. Reasoning by Analogy
3. Serial Reasoning
4. Spatial Visualization
The highly competitive G&T admission test (OLSAT & NNAT) is given only once
a year. Students deserve to be well equiped to give their best shot.
