Adequately Preparing for the G&T Test is Important September 18, 2014

Upper East Side, Manhattan
Adequately Preparing for the G&T Test is Important, Manhattan, New York

Children born in 2010 are eligible to apply for kindergarten seats in the city's competitive Gifted and Talented programs for the 2015 academic year. Children born in 2009 are eligible to apply for 1st grade seats in those coveted programs. Test preparation experts, such as Bharti Malkani from Manhattan Enrichment, advocate for adequate test preparation for both parents and kids. Practice is very important, especially to ensure that kids understand the format of the test and what they are being asked to do.

Student eligibility for Gifted and Talented (G&T) schools and programs is determined by student outcomes on two assessments, which measure verbal and nonverbal cognitive abilities. The Otis Lennon School Ability (OLSAT-8) measures verbal reasoning and comprehension skills, as well as abstract thinking and logical reasoning skills in a multiple-choice format. The Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test-2nd Edition (NNAT-2) measures students’ nonverbal abilities, including critical thinking and problem solving, through questions that address pattern completion, reasoning by analogy, serial reasoning, and spatial visualization.

Manhattan Enrichment is currently enrolling students for our September G&T Test Prep classes and they are already filling up. Please register early to secure your child's space. Click here to learn more.
