OLSAT Test Prep Level A
The OLSAT test is a multiple-choice assessment that measures reasoning skills with several different verbal, non-verbal, figural, and quantitative reasoning questions. But while schools administer the OLSAT for admissions into gifted programs, it can also be used as an assessment tool to find student strengths and deficiencies. And that is why we are including OLSAT Test Prep Level A in our curriculum kits. The sample problems will teach your child how to think and tackle the many different styles of questions. OLSAT Test Prep Level A will also give you insights into your child’s ability to follow directions. Additionally, it can shed light on your child’s general knowledge and competencies. By working through OLSAT Test Prep Level A with your child, you should find that as his critical thinking skills improve, so does his performance in other subjects. A Seal of Approval winner by The National Parenting Center, OLSAT Test Prep Level A includes instructions, test strategy, practice tests, and enough spiraling practice questions to help your child gain mastery.
From the Publisher:
The Otis-Lennon School Ability Test® (OLSAT®), published by Pearson Education Inc., measures cognitive abilities relating to success in school. The test has several levels that correspond to different grade levels or age ranges. The test is comprised of two main sections: Verbal and Nonverbal. Each of these is further broken into specific sections that vary by level and include a mix of reasoning and thinking activities.
The OLSAT® is one of the most commonly used assessments for identifying gifted children during elementary school-age years—as an entrance test to a talented and gifted program; or as a prescriptive assessment tool to find student strengths and deficiencies. In short, the OLSAT® has the capability to answer many questions regarding your student’s abilities across both verbal and nonverbal spectrums.
Most test preparation products try to mimic sample problems provided by the test publisher. They offer smaller, cheaper practice activities—often without proper instruction of the concepts being assessed—to try to prep students for the test. This teaching-to-the-test approach leaves students vulnerable to variations of problems that they are likely to encounter in a test.
The authors of this book analyzed the thinking skills and academic concepts targeted in the OLSAT® Level A to create a powerful test prep product that teaches beyond the test. It also improves students’ critical thinking skills so they also perform better in school.
