NNAT® Test

One of the most frequently used nonverbal tests to recognize children's talent is the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT), first released in 2004 and created by Jack A. Naglieri.

This Test is used in the United States as an admission test for K-12 students (ages 5 to 17) for eligibility to gifted and talented programs.

The Naglieri NonVerbal Ability Test is also known as the NNAT, NNAT2, or NNAT3. The distinctions are upgraded versions of the test. The NNAT3 is the most recent edition.

The Naglieri measures non-verbal abilities, eliminating factors such as language and learning disabilities. One advantage of this test is that it is culturally neutral.

It is a multiple choice test, including visuals and pictures instead of words. The NNAT tests children's reasoning abilities. It does not measure the level of knowledge students have achieved.

The latest version of NNAT Test (NNAT3) includes 48 questions and takes 30 minutes to complete.

The NNAT® Test includes four kinds of questions: Pattern Completion, Reasoning by Analogy, Serial Reasoning, and Spatial Visualization. These skills are not actually tested in schools, or at least the way they are evaluated on NNAT is not the way they are tested in schools. For this reason, you should help your child by training him with practical NNAT questions.

In the Pattern Completion Test, the student is given a drawing in a rectangle. Within the larger rectangle, there is a missing piece. The child must select the best answer from the options provided that most closely matches the lacking piece of the rectangle, so that the picture is complete.

In the Reasoning by Analogy Test, students are given a picture and asked to identify the relationships between different geometric shapes. The student must recognize the relationship between the shapes and determine how they change across the rows of the matrix.

In the Serial Reasoning Test, students needs to understand how the geometric shapes change as you move across the rows and columns.

In the Spatial Visualisation Test students must combine or rotate two or more shapes to determine how the resulting image will look.
