Gifted Practice Test Link

For anyone who needs the link again, this has some practice questions based on your child’s age.   (And available in many languages!)

I’m running through these with my son before the gifted test today (in true procrastinator style 3 hours before test time.)

He’s been bribed with getting the Lego Harry Potter Nintendo DS game as a reward.  So of course as soon as he woke up this morning he insisted that he wanted the game BEFORE the test.  Given his history of getting really frustrated with any new game during the first couple hours (given his relatively weak game-playing abilities that still are better than my horrible game-playing abilities) there is no way in heck that’s gonna happen. 

Will report later.  I’m hoping that by the time high school testing comes around this all seems like a cakewalk to him.   Wonder what I’ll be bribing him with then?   Probably some kind of electronic that doesn’t even exist yet.

    He was already in a gifted program that he placed into for Kindergarten. When he took the test before 1st grade, he didn’t test high enough to place into Bell (which I think was the only school I put on the application.)

    I don’t think you should practice for gifted or classical testing. The style of the tests are developmentally appropriate and coaching children may inflate a score. If a child has an inflated score but doesn’t have a gifted profile, they will be miserable in a CPS regional gifted center or classical school.
