And can someone tell me what do the
cats test involve. Thanks
CATs tests (cognitive ability) are used to get a snapshot of a student's ability in 3 areas; quantitive, verbal and non-verbal. I personally think that it's really important not
to prepare students for them. Schools use them in different ways, but usually for progress tracking. If a child has hyper-inflated CATa scores because of lots of prep then they'll find it hard to work 'above the expected progress'. The inflated CATs results will make it look like they're under performing for 3 years!
There are practise questions at the start of each 'battery' (section) and they're really not too bad. I just told mine to enjoy them and not to stress too much.
