    The identification process will consist of scores attained on three assessments given to all second grade students: a universal screener, the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT), and Scales for Rating the Behavioral Characteristics or Superior Students (Renzulli Scales). 

    The CogAT is an online assessment that evaluates the level and pattern of cognitive development and problem solving abilities using verbal, quantitative, and spatial (nonverbal) reasoning.  Building principals and IT staff will be supporting teachers with administration of the CogAT assessment.
