Gifted and Talented Prep

gnt-bannerG&T / ERB Test Prep
Starting in the 2013-2014 testing season, the NYC Department of Education will continue to keep the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test ® (OLSAT) going forward but will switch the Bracken with the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT2). Bracken is a knowledge test, while the NNAT2 is a non-verbal ability test. The test is rather complex and consists of 4 different types of non-verbal skills such as 1) pattern completions, 2) analogical reasoning, 3) serial reasoning and 4) spatial visualization. It typically takes about 30 minutes to administer 48 questions.

We offer a comprehensive course designed to prepare your child for Otis-Lennon School Ability Test ® (OLSAT) and the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT2) tests which are required for placement in a Department of Education district or city wide Gifted and Talented Program. There are also options to prepare your child for components of the ERB which is required for entry into most private and/or independent schools in NYC.

Your child will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of learning formats such as interactive hands-on lessons including working with a variety of manipulatives, as well as SMARTboard technology, presentations and test taking strategies.

Our G&T prep course includes 14 class sessions and 2 test sessions. Classes are held once a week, each lasting 1.5 hours. *All classes have a low student/teacher ratio; a maximum of 10 students per class with 2 teachers (5:1). Private one-on-one sessions are available.
