Universal Screening

As part of the Douglas County School District’s Universal Screening Process, ALL students in Grade 3 and 5 will take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT 7) in September.  This assessment indicates the level and pattern of cognitive development of a student in comparison to grade and age mates.  These general reasoning abilities, which start developing at birth and continue through early adulthood, are influenced by experiences gained both in and out of school.  


If your child is in 3rd or 5th please see detailed information about this assessment here: Universal Screening Information.

NOTE:  Requesting this assessment automatically initiates the process to evaluate for Gifted Identification.
