The Otis-Lennon School Ability Test ® (OLSAT®) is used throughout the United States to screen for admission to Gifted and Talented (G&T) programs. The OLSAT® is a cognitive assessment (not an IQ test) administered to students ranging from Pre-K to 12th grade. There are seven different versions of the OLSAT® designed for different age groups.
In New York, the OLSAT® comprises 1/3 of a child's total G&T admissions score. The child's Naglieri Nonverbal Abilities Test® (NNAT®) score serves as the remaining 2/3 of the child's G&T score. The New York Department of Education encourages parents to prepare their children to ensure that they are familiar with the structure and type of questions on the OLSAT®.
