Gifted Placement & Identification
Students are assessed in three areas (verbal, quantitative, and non-verbal) using the CogAT assessment. The state of Arizona requires placement for students scoring at the 97th percentile or higher on state-approved tests. GESD offers gifted services for students who score at or above 95% in one or more areas at all of our campuses.
A student is assessed on the NNAT assessment if they scored between a 90%-94% in any of the three areas on the CogAT assessment. GESD offers gifted services for students who score at or above 92% on the NNAT assessment.
