OLSAT Grade 2 Level C Tests

What is the OLSAT®?

The OLSAT (Otis-Lennon School Ability Test) is an aptitude test for grades K-12 that measures reasoning and problem solving skills. The OLSAT test measures verbal and nonverbal ability and is often used to identify gifted and talented children for entrance into school accelerated, advanced, gifted and talented programs.

OLSAT Test Question Types and Levels

The time allowed for an OLSAT test can vary between 60 and 75 minutes.

OLSAT tests contain verbal and nonverbal questions. The verbal category is split into verbal comprehension and verbal reasoning, and each of these contains specific question types. The nonverbal category is split into pictorial reasoning, figural reasoning and quantitative reasoning, and each of these contains specific question types.

There are seven levels of OLSAT test depending on a student’s grade level. Overall, there are 21 question types (or classes of question) that can be used to form an OLSAT test. However, different levels of the OLSAT use different question types and no level uses all 21 question types.
