Universal Screening

As part of the Douglas County School District’s Universal Screening Process, ALL students in Grade 3 and 6 will take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT 7) the weeks of September 3-23.  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 6th please see detailed information about this assessment here: Universal Screening Information.


Gifted Identification Referral Testing 

If your child is in grades K, 1, 2, 4, 5 and you believe he/she needs evaluation for Gifted Identification and Services, you may refer your child for testing by initiating the Gifted Identification Process.  

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


Please request CogAT testing for your child by completing the Referral for Gifted Identification linked HERE.
