GATE Admission & Resources

GATE Admission

UPDATE:

Students  referred in grades 2-6  for testing were assessed utilizing the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test [ Version 2 ] this year.

The NNAT2 [Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test] is a brief, culture fair and nonverbal measure of intellectual ability. The assessment consists of 48 questions that rely upon reasoning using figural designs not upon verbal skills. The ‘problems’ are challenges in Pattern Completion [PC]; Reasoning by Analogy [RA]; Serial Reasoning [SR]; and Spatial Visualization [SV]. For more information and to view sample test questions go to: http://www.tests.com/practice/NNAT-Practice-Test

NOTE: Standards of qualification via Intellectual Ability [NNAT2] and/or Academic Achievement will be modified to show exemplary academic success for the next year as a direct result of sunset of California Standards Testing [CST] in 2013.
