    • Norm referenced testing of grade 3 students: Aptitude-Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) > 95th percentile Achievement- Iowa Assessment at or above the 95th percentile.


Students who score at or above the 95th percentile on either measure will be nominated and considered for AIG differentiated services.


Available information is compiled from the formal and informal indicators of potential giftedness. This data is considered by the School Based Committee for Gifted Education. The SBCGE will determine either that the student does not require further review at this time, or that the student will be referred for further evaluation.


Nomination / testing windows are posted at each school. Nominations received by the school AIG teacher prior to the close of the established nomination / testing windows will be considered for referral. If a nomination is received after the nomination / testing windows, the nomination will be considered during the next semester testing window.
