The South Carolina Performance Task Assessments are administered to students in 2nd through 5th grade who have met the gifted and talented program criteria in one, but not both, of the CogAT and the Iowa Assessments given in the second grade. This set of tests contains verbal and nonverbal components and assesses a student’s degree of interest in, and commitment to, academic and/or intellectual pursuits. It also assesses intellectual characteristics such as curiosity/inquiry, reflection, persistence/tenacity in the face of challenge and creative productive thinking.
