What is InView®?

InView® is a cognitive abilities aptitude test that measures verbal reasoning, sequences, analogies, and quantitative reasoning. InView® was originally developed by CTB/McGraw-Hill, but is now owned by Data Recognition Corporation which acquired key assets of CTB/McGraw-Hill in 2015. InView® tests measure both nonverbal and verbal ability and are often used to identify gifted and talented children for entrance into school accelerated, advanced, gifted and talented programs.

InView Test Question Types and Levels

There are five subtests in an InView test. The five subtests are:

  • Sequences
  • Analogies
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Verbal Reasoning – Words
  • Verbal Reasoning – Context

The first three subtests (sequences, analogies and quantitative reasoning) are nonverbal and the last two subtests (verbal reasoning words, and verbal reasoning context) are verbal.

Information on these five subtests is shown below:

For sequences, students need to continue or complete a pattern by determining a rule or principle implicit in a sequence of figures, letters or numbers. This task involves recognition of progressions, spatial relationships, ordered patterns and combinations of parts to form a whole.

At level 1 (grades 2 & 3), the questions are made up of patterns and sequences of figures (i.e. the sequences are geometric, figural or mixed). At levels 2 through 6 (i.e. from grades 4 to 12), the questions are made up of patterns, sequences of figures, letters and numbers (i.e. the sequences are geometric, figural, mixed, numeric and alphabetic).

For analogies, students are given two pictures and have to determine a relationship between them, and then, given a third picture, students have to find an answer choice that produces a similar relationship to that of the first two pictures. Pictures can include scenes, animals, people, objects and abstract graphic symbols.

For quantitative reasoning, students need to solve problems and identify arithmetic patterns using quantitative reasoning processes.

At level 1 (grades 2 & 3), the questions are made up of number operations puzzles, grid comparisons and algebraic substitution (equations).
At levels 2 to 6 (i.e. grades 4 to 12), a different set of quantitative reasoning question types applies.

For verbal reasoning (words), students need to answer questions based on an understanding of the relationship between words.

There are four question types dealing with the relationship between words – necessary part of, analogous sets, category inclusion and category exclusion. Examples of these question types are shown further down the page.

For verbal reasoning (context), students need to use logical reasoning to decide which statement is true based on certain information and facts. An example is given further down the page.

There are six levels of InView test, depending on a student’s grade level. The six levels and their associated grades are shown below:

  • Level 1 (Grades 2 & 3)
  • Level 2 (Grades 4 & 5)
  • Level 3 (Grades 6 & 7)
  • Level 4 (Grades 8 & 9)
  • Level 5 (Grades 10 & 11)
  • Level 6 (Grades 11 & 12)

InView 2nd Grade & 3rd Grade Level 1 Test Format

The InView Level 1 (Grades 2 & 3) test has 100 questions in total and is a 105 minute (i.e. 1 hour 45 minute) test (without including the extra time needed to do the sample questions before each of the five subtests).

The sample questions that appear in our demo software are shown below.

Sequences

Choose the answer that continues the sequence or completes the pattern in the top row.

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 sequences

Answer: C

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 sequences

Looking at the top row, the first box has three white rectangles, the second box has two white rectangles and the third box has one white rectangle. Therefore the fourth box will have zero white rectangles i.e. the box will be entirely green, so the answer is (C).

Alternatively, you could say that the first box is a quarter green, the second box is half green (i.e. two quarters green) and the third box is three quarters green. Therefore the fourth box will be four quarters green i.e. entirely green, so the answer is (C).

Analogies

The pictures on the top row are related. Which answer should go in the empty box so that the pictures on the bottom row are related in the same way as the pictures on the top row?

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 analogies

Answer: D

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 analogies

The relationship between the pictures on the top row is that a glove goes on (is put on) a hand.

The picture on the second row is a sock, so the answer will be something that a sock goes on (is put on), therefore the answer is (D), a foot.

Quantitative Reasoning – Grid Comparisons

Each grid is made up of small squares and has some shaded black areas. Which grid has the largest black area?

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 quantitative reasoning 1

Answer: C

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 quantitative reasoning 1

Grid A has a black area equivalent to two small squares.

Grid B has a black area equivalent to one small square plus a triangle. The triangle is half of one small square, so grid B has a black area equivalent to one and a half small squares.

Grid C has a black area equivalent to one small square plus three triangles. Each triangle is half of one small square, so the three triangles have an area equivalent to three half squares i.e. an area equivalent to one and a half squares. Therefore grid C has a black area equivalent to one small square plus one and a half small squares i.e. to two and a half small squares.

Grid D has a black area equivalent to one small square plus one triangle plus one rectangle. The triangle is half of one small square and the rectangle is half of one small square, so the area of the triangle and the rectangle is equivalent to the area of one small square. Therefore grid D has a black area equivalent to two small squares.

Therefore grid C is the grid with the largest black area.

Quantitative Reasoning – Number Operations Puzzles

Choose the answer that can be made by adding or subtracting any two of the numbers in the rectangle.

Answer: C

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 quantitative reasoning 2

3 + 6 = 9

Quantitative Reasoning – Algebraic Substitution – Equations

Find the value of the question mark based on the following number sentences.

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 quantitative reasoning 3

Answer: B

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 quantitative reasoning 3

The rhombus has a value of 3, so the top number sentence can be rewritten as

circle + 3 = 5

so the value of circle is the number which equals 5 when 3 is added to it i.e. the number 2

Verbal Reasoning – Words – Necessary Part Of

Which of these is a necessary part of the underlined word?

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 verbal reasoning words 1

Three of these words belong together. Choose the answer that does not belong.

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 verbal reasoning words 3

Answer: C

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 verbal reasoning words 3

The other three words are animals.

Verbal Reasoning – Words – Analogous Sets

The words in the top row go together in a certain way. The words in the second row go together in the same way. Choose the answer that completes the second row of words.

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 verbal reasoning words 4

Answer: D

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 verbal reasoning words 4

The words on the top row are words for a male, a female and a young sheep. The words on the second row are words for a male and a female horse, so you need to choose the answer that is a word for a young horse.

Verbal Reasoning – Context

Choose the answer that must be true based on the facts in the two sentences below.

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 verbal reasoning words context

Answer: D

inview test prep grade 2 and 3 level 1 verbal reasoning words context

Answer (A) is not necessarily true; all we are told is that Jack is the fastest sprinter in his class, so we don’t know if he is the fastest sprinter in his school or not.

Answer (B) is not necessarily true; all we are told is that Jim is in Jack’s class, we are told nothing about how good he is at sprinting.

Answer (C) is not necessarily true; all we are told is that Jack is the fastest sprinter in his class, but we don’t know if he likes athletics or not.

Answer (D) must be true because we are told that Jack is the fastest sprinter in his class and that Jim is in Jack’s class, so Jim must be a slower sprinter than Jack.
