Gifted Testing

This year, the Gifted Screening for all grade 3 students will take place on December 3rd in the morning at school.

This year's grade 3 Gifted Screening procedure is a two stage process. Stage one involves the administration of the Canadian Cognitive Abilities test (CCAT) to all Grade Three students.  If a student meets the CCAT criterion, they will be referred for Stage Two in the process, an Intellectual Screening, with a member of the YRDSB Psychological Services department.  Letters to parents of students who met the criterion to participate in stage 2 and forms to obtain their consent for the second stage of the gifted screening will be distributed to those parents in January, 2016.
