North Mason School District will be administering the Cognitive Abilities Screening Test (CogAT) during the month of February in second grade, fifth grade and to those students referred by either a parent/guardian or teacher.  The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) measures students’ learned reasoning abilities in the three areas most linked to academic success in school: Verbal, Quantitative and Nonverbal.  This test is used to determine potential academic placement as well as district highly capable services. 


If interested in referring a student, please fill out the Referral Form for North Mason School District CogAT Testing located at each school’s main office and on the North Mason School District web site. Please return them to your child’s school’s main office by January 21st.  If you have any further questions regarding CogAT testing or the referral process please contact Lisa Roberts, Assistant Superintendent.
