All 2nd, 4th and 6th graders with parent permission participate in GATE testing at their school site (see site administrator for testing dates). Any student who misses the test or is not currently in one of the grades above may still be tested by parent request. The student may be tested at the site during the testing window or at the GATE office (call for testing date and time). Students may complete the test for GATE identification no more than once per year.
The GATE identification process typically involves the following measures:
- Raven’s Standard Progressive Matrices (SPM)
- California Standardized Testing and Reporting Scores (STAR Tests)
