Gifted & Talented Test Prep

 

"Excellence in education is when we do everything that we can to make sure they become everything that they can." -Carol Ann Tomlinson

Here at New Milestone, we believe that every child is capable of achieving greatness.

"Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs are one way that the NYC Department of Education supports the needs of exceptional students. G&T programs aim to deliver accelerated, rigorous, and specialized instruction aligned to Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS)" (www.nyc.gov).

The G&T test determines the educational future of every child that partakes in the exam. Here at New Milestone, we understand that this exam is very challenging. We are well equipped and ready to prep your child to complete the G&T exam with competence and the necessary skills needed to pass. Our program has a 90% passing rate for the past two years. We have confidence in all of our children.

During the first few weeks of school, we begin to work with each child individually for 30 minutes a day, five days a week. Our test prep consists of two sets of tests: The NNAT ® test and the OLSAT ® test. The NNAT test is designed to test pattern completion, and reasoning by analogy. The OLSAT test covers aural reasoning, pictorial reasoning, figural reasoning, following directions, and arithmetic reasoning. We also work on test taking skills, such as listening to the question, and the process of selecting the most appropriate answer, if they are unsure how to respond.

Here at New Milestone, it is our goal to make sure that your children receive the most effective preparation for the G&T test. The future starts here.

 

Sample Test Preview



[1] Look at the design in the large rectangle while paying attention to the missing square. Which answer choice completes the design?

Answers

[1] The correct answer is D. Imagine continuing the two curves across the empty square. The right side of the outermost curve will be white. The right side of the next curve will be yellow and the left side of the curve will be blue. The only answer choice that conforms to these requirements is answer choice D.



[2] Look for a relationship between the figures across the rows and down the columns. The direction in which you examine the question should depend on where you can most easily visualize the analogous relationship.

Answers
[2] The correct answer is A. Look at the top row. The left figure is the mirror image of the right figure, flipped horizontally. It is helpful to focus on a specific part of the shape. For example, in the left frame, the top blue square appears in the left corner and in the right frame, the top blue square appears in the right corner. Now, look at the bottom row. The figures in the bottom row will follow the same rules. The figure on the right will be the mirror image of the figure on the left. The left figure contains a white circle over four squares: yellow in the top-left and bottom-right corners, and blue in the opposite corners. The figure on the right will also contain a white circle over the four squares. The difference will be that the yellow squares will be positioned in the top-right and bottom-left corners, and the blue squares will be positioned in the top-left and bottom-right corners. The correct answer is answer choice A.
