~*Beatrix*~ Posted November 3, 2012 Share Posted November 3, 2012 (edited) So I have lurked enough to know that OLSAT is only an indicator and not the standard by which gifted individuals are measured. Besides being plain curious, I'm trying to find a barometer for my own kids' abilities by looking back at my own. I'm not sure I understand enough to interpret my own scores. I took the OLSAT in 1990 or 1991 I believe. It was on a scale of/had a ceiling of 145 or 150 (is that still the case?) and I scored 145 or 150-- whichever means I got a perfect score overall. I started getting pulled out for GT. My parents had me assessed by an independent psychologist who also tested me. I have no idea what he used and neither do my parents. It was largely oral and I seem to remember him holding up cards and asking me about what I saw? But that may have been related to some other part of treatment (I was in counseling with him around the same time due to a death in the family). No "score" has been passed down through the family lore for this test he gave me. All I know is that he told my parents I was advanced across the boards in every area equally, which he said was uncommon, and he recommended skipping me one grade level. He said he "could recommend two" but that would make things difficult for me socially (um, yes!). I was then skipped into third grade mid year. Can anyone translate?
