In this CAT4 tag Archive, you can find all of the articles on our site which are about the CAT4. We also look at different CAT4 trends to give you a good overview of current and future trends and developments.

The CAT is a standardised cognitive test. It provides insights into children’s’ ability to reason across 4 fields.

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Spatial Reasoning

The content of these tests is not curriculum-based. Instead of testing a child’s knowledge, they are meant to highlight strengths and weaknesses. Plus, to gauge pupils’ potential, and to use such benchmarking in the teaching process

CAT scores are used by a large number of UK secondary schools and an increasing number of primary schools, both in the state and independent sector.

We are also proud to provide quizzes for some of these fields. Therefore this includes quantitative reasoning, not covered in most other assessments. The quizzes are only 10 minutes. They can be great for practice in all the different formats. These links can be very helpful in getting that quick daily practice. These are prepared by an ex-exam board writer and come with a nominal fee. At the end of the short quiz, you will be provided with your score and the correct answers. If necessary there will also be a method attached.

Therefore make sure you follow this tag archive to stay up to date.
