What is covered in the SCAT?2017-10-07T11:50:30-04:00

#### What is covered in the SCAT?

There are three different levels of the CTY SCAT:

• Elementary SCAT – 2nd and 3rd grade students take the Elementary SCAT, which is designed for 4th-6th graders. The test is scored in comparison to 4th and 5th graders, respectively.
• Intermediate SCAT – 4th and 5th grade students take the Intermediate SCAT, which is designed for 6th-9th graders. The test is scored in comparison to 6th-9th graders.

The SCAT is made up of two sections: quantitative reasoning and verbal reasoning:

The quantitative reasoning section on the SCAT assesses a student’s comprehension of number operations and mathematical reasoning. This section includes multiple choice mathematical comparisons, consisting of two quantities, of which students must determine which is greater than the other.

The SCAT verbal section assesses a student’s verbal reasoning and vocabulary skills. This section includes multiple choice verbal analogy questions, consisting of two words that go together in a certain way, followed by four pairs of words (the answer choices). Students need to select the pair of words with the same relationship as the first two words to best complete the analogy.

How long is the SCAT?2017-10-07T11:48:43-04:00

#### How long is the SCAT?

The two sections, each 22 minutes long, are separated by a 10-minute break. The break is optional and student-directed. In other words, the test center administrator will not start and end the break. It is the student’s responsibility to return to the test on time. If students take any other breaks during the test, timing will continue. Your appointment time will be 90 minutes but the test itself usually takes less than one hour.

#### When is the SCAT administered?

Students must test on or before June 30, each year and can choose a date, time, and location convenient for them.

How is the SCAT scored?2017-10-07T11:35:23-04:00

#### How is the SCAT scored?

The raw score is calculated by tallying the total number of questions answered correctly out of the 50 scored questions. Scaled scores range from 400 to 514, according to the test version.

The SCAT percentile is used to compare students to those in higher grades. Since the SCAT is an above grade level test, students take a test designed for higher grades and the scaled scores are compared to performance norms of students in higher grades. For example, 2nd and 3rd grade students take the Elementary SCAT version, designed for 3rd – 6th graders and their scores are compared to the norms of 4th and 5th grade students, respectively.

To be eligible for CTY programs, students taking the SCAT must achieve these scores:

2 435 430
3 440 435
4 450 440
5 465 445
6 470 450
