Second Grade Testing

Students in second grade will be administered the CogAT and Iowa assessments as part of South Carolina’s Grade 2 Gifted and Talented Assessment Program. SC State Board Regulation 43-220 requires districts to test all enrolled students (in-person and virtual attendance plans). Testing is conducted at the student’s enrolled elementary school.

We encourage your child to test, as these assessments are screeners for qualifying to participate in our South Carolina Gifted and Talented Program (Challenge). The test results are also used to determine placement in the Charles Townes Center (CTC) at Sterling School for Highly Gifted students. Complete criteria for Challenge and CTC can be found on the Greenville County Schools website.

Although the primary purpose of these assessments is to identify students for the Gifted and Talented Programs, student results can be useful to teachers as they examine their instructional practices and can help them identify teaching strategies for all students.

We have scheduled your student to participate in the CogAT and Iowa assessments on the following dates. 

UPDATED TESTING SCHEDULE                          Test             Dates*
All WES In-Person Second Graders                       CogAT        October 27 & October 28
All WES In-Person Second Graders                        Iowa           October 29

Woodland Virtual Second Graders – Schultz & Ovsak schedules were sent to students…please check with your child’s teacher for the dates & times!

*Due to the uncertainty of and impact surrounding COVID-19 affecting schools’ schedules, all dates are subject to change. 

If you do not want your child to participate in this testing opportunity or have questions, please contact Chris Phillips by email at by Tuesday, October 13. This will be the only opportunity students have this year to take the CogAT and Iowa assessments. If you have questions about the Gifted and Talented Program and/or CTC, please contact Jane Snyder at 355-4821 or at
