29b CAT4 practice for students (ppt)

(0)
A 28 slide PowerPoint that provides examples of CAT4 assessment tasks and answers. CAT4 assessments consist of verbal reasoning – thinking with words; quantitative reasoning – thinking with numbers; non-verbal reasoning – thinking with shapes and spatial ability – thinking with shape and space. Many schools use CAT4 to provide ‘predictions’ for GCSE results. Four sets of practice assessment questions are provided plus additional questions. These questions should be practiced by students so they understand the patterns and inner logic of the four reasoning areas away from the pressure of sitting at a computer with the assessment about to begin, and the clock about to count down.
