OLSAT 8 measures cognitive abilities that relate to a student's academic success in school. By assessing a student's verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative ability, OLSAT 8 supplies educators with valuable information to enhance the insights gained from traditional achievement tests.
OLSAT® 8 can be administered with Stanford 10 to relate a student's actual achievement with his or her school ability. When these tests are given in combination, an Achievement/Ability Comparison (AAC) score is obtained. AACs describe a student's achievement in relation to the achievement of students with the same measured school ability. AAC scores give educators a better understanding of each student's potential for success in school.
