Well, according to a recent Wall St. Journal article fewer students qualified for gifted and talented spots in New York City. Here are the highlights from the article:
- Only 7% of pre-K students who took the NNAT test and OLSAT test got a 99th percentile when compared to last year only 11% received the coveted perfect score.
- There are only 350+ spots available for five citywide G&T programs going into Kindergarten next year and 1,863 students qualified with a 97th to 99th percentile ranking.
- It looks like the change to the NYC gifted and talented test helped lower the scores since there was a 13% increase of children qualifying for a district-wide seat. The child must score in the 90th to 96th percentile to qualify for a district wide program in NYC.
The results did come in for TestingMom.com members where the average score was 96.4th percentile based upon recent survey for their members.
