About the NNAT®

Comprised of seven levels for children K through 12, the NNAT was designed to assess children’s problem solving skills independent of the biases of language skills, cultural upbringing, and formal school training. As such, this exam is used by numerous education professionals (e.g. counselors, school psychologist, bilingual educators) and is used to identify gifted students whose first language is not English, who might score high on the NNAT, but have lower CogAT scores. These students could potentially become high academic achievers later in their schooling.

The NNAT is normally administered with other tests like the CogAT or OLSAT which include a verbal section.

Tests include up to four different types of questions

·pattern completion

·reasoning by analogy

·serial reasoning

·spatial visualization

Versions of the NNAT

Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test, Second Edition (NNAT2)

2007 Normative Data will be replaced by 2011 Normative Data Effective August 1, 2012

Redesigned to engage and better assess the general student population. Extending this illustration to the NNAT2, we can expect that the “changing norms phenomenon” will apply to the new NNAT2 norms. As in this illustration, the NNAT2 updated norms will lead to the slightly lower NAI scores on average due to the change of the population.
