Gifted testing takes place three times a year in accordance with the Arizona State Mandate. Paradise Valley Unified School District primarily uses the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) and the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT2) to identify gifted students.
PV Schools Gifted assessments ensure fairness to the District’s ethnically diverse population. The assessment battery includes tools that are language-free and culturally unbiased to provide equal opportunities for identification of the District’s English language learners and culturally diverse students:
- The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT)
- Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT2)
- Stanford Binet Intelligence Scales (SB-V used for incoming preschool only)
