    Advanced Learning Testing

    Please Note Update to Testing Process

    The Advanced Learning Department is working on a number of viable options for testing and identification of students during remote learning. More information will be coming soon. 

    Testing Process

    All K-8 students referred may take a cognitive assessment. Cognitive results, math and reading scores, and the Student Characteristics Survey completed by a teacher or community member are all considered as part of the evaluation. Read more about the testing process.

    Testing Locations and Missed Test Appeals

    On the day of your scheduled test, please arrive at the testing session 10-15 minutes early to check in. Look for posted signs to help guide you to the check in location, which is typically the lunchroom or auditorium.

    We know that sometimes unavoidable circumstances may occur which would prevent your student from attending their scheduled test date.

    Private Evaluators

    Testing provided by private evaluators will only be accepted for appeals. Read more about private evaluators.


    The eligibility decision process is conducted by the Advanced Learning Office's Multidisciplinary Selection Committee. The process of determining if a student is eligible for Advanced Learning Programs or Highly Capable Services begins after all required information has been collected for the student.
