(All 2nd Graders will take this test )

The Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, Eighth Edition (OLSAT-8) achievement test is a nationally standardized, norm-referenced, group administered measure of verbal and non-verbal school abilities for gifted/talented identification. The OLSAT-8 is not an intellectual assessment but rather an achievement test that focuses on areas that are valid measures of an individual’s ability to reason logically, i.e., detecting likenesses and differences, recalling words and numbers, defining words, following directions, classifying, establishing sequence, solving arithmetic problems and completing analogies.
