OLSAT Prep for Pre-K-12th Grade Students

The OLSAT exam (Otis-Lennon School Ability Test), the gifted and talented program, is a test of abstract thinking and reasoning ability of children PreK-ages 18.

The exam has five sections:

  1. Verbal Comprehension: Verbal Comprehension tests assess whether you know the meanings of words and how broad a vocabulary you have at your disposal.
  2. Verbal Reasoning: Verbal Reasoning is the Ability to verbally compare and contrast words. This may also include vocabulary which is simply giving a verbal definition to a word. In a verbal reasoning test, you are usually provided with a section of text followed by one or more statements.
  3. Pictorial Reasoning: Pictorial Reasoning is planning and predicting what will occur next in a visual sequence.
  4. Figural Reasoning: Figural Reasoning is basically Puzzles. The puzzles can be totally visually based or combine visual/perceptual skills.
  5. Quantitative Reasoning: Quantitative Reasoning is Math Based. Word Problems, basic math, applied math and numerical sequencing according to a specific rule.

This test is designed to asses areas that are not taught in school and usually measures a student’s cognitive growth from year-to-year.
