When I am not at Oak Ridge, I love spending time with my friends and family and my sweet puppies Bailey and Birdie.

CogAT Practice Materials
Test 1: Verbal Analogies - Students examine a pair of words and think of ways in which they are related. Then they apply this relationship to a third word to generate a new pair of words related to each other in the same way as the first pair.
Test 2: Sentence Completion - Students read an incomplete sentence and then select the answer choice that best completes the sentence.
Test 3: Verbal Classification - Students examine three words and think of ways in which they are alike. Then they select the answer choice that belongs in the same group.
Test 4: Number Analogies - Students examine two pairs of numbers and determine the rule both pairs follow. Then they apply the rule to a given number and choose the answer that generates a third pair of numbers that follows the same rule. The test questions require the same processes as the Verbal Analogies test, but uses quantitative concepts rather than verbal concepts.
Test 5: Number Puzzles - Each question presents an equation in which elements are missing. The students must substitute numbers for the missing elements and solve the equation.
Test 6: Number Series - Each question contains a series of numbers that follows a pattern. First students identify the rule the numbers follow. Then they apply the rule to find the next number in the series.
Test 7: Figure Matrices - Each question presents a matrix in which one figure is missing. Students determine the rule(s) that the existing figures follow. They then apply the rule(s) to choose the figure that completes the matrix.
Test 8: Paper Folding - Each question shows a piece of paper being folded and holes being punched in the folded paper. Students must choose the answer that shows how the paper looks when it is unfolded.
Test 9: Figure Classification - For each question, students must determine how three figures are similar and the select the answer choice that is most like the first three figures.
