What is the CAT4?
The Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4) is used by UK schools to assess pupils’ developed abilities and future academic potential.
Schools use a child’s performance in a CAT4 to judge progress over the academic year and to make decisions regarding setting and streaming according to ability. It is a way for a school to understand a pupil’s strengths and weaknesses and to personalise learning and adapt teaching.
The resulting data is used to identify a pupil’s strengths, weaknesses and learning preferences. Crucial information essential for personalised learning. The more a school knows about a pupil, the better it can position itself to enable pupils to maximise their individual potential.
CAT4 Test Format 考試模式
The CAT4 is usually administered in four parts and consists of questions assessing:
- Verbal Reasoning (VR)
- Non Verbal Reasoning (NVR)
- Quantitative Reasoning (QR)
- Spatial Awareness (SA).
Questions are in multiple-choice format and there are five answers to choose from, labelled A-E.
CAT4 is available for children aged 7:06 – 17+ years and comes in seven different levels of difficulty. Each comprises three tests of 45 minutes each; 2 hours 15 minutes in total.
