Identification

GATE Screening for 2nd and 4th Grade Students

All 2nd and 4th grade LBUSD students will be screened for possible Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) services using the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT).  Information from the CogAT along with student achievement will be used to determine identification.  Screening for traditional schools will begin on April 8, 2016.  GATE screening for Track B will begin May 12th .  Students who receive a percentile rank of 77 or higher on the pre-screener will participate in further CogAT Testing for possible GATE identification within four-weeks of the first screening date.

CogAT post-screener scores are part of a collection of academic information that will be used to assist with determining identification for GATE services.  Students who continue on with additional online CogAT testing will also participate in an academic review.
