Each fall the CogAT-Custom Form is administered to all FCPS second grade students. Students who are new to FCPS and do not have an ability test score on file will also be given the CogAT test in the fall testing window. Parents will be notified of specific testing dates in October. This year the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT) will be administered to FCPS first grade students in the spring. Parents or guardians of students in Grades 3-6 may exercise a one-time re-test option during the fall testing cycle. In order to request that your child be re-tested, please submit your request in writing to Ms. Bumbrey by October 1, 2014. Requests must be submitted by fax or mail with a parent signature, date, and the name of the requested test. No email requests will be accepted. Fax to: 703-322-3197 or send in with your child ATTN: Mrs. Bumbrey.
Please feel free to use this template:
