Posted on 07/07/2014 1:06:12 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Are you smart enough to get into private kindergarten? Take this test from Bright Kids NYC and find out how you fare on AABL practice questions.
Question 1 of 5
The educational services company ERB's Admission Assessment for Beginning Learners (AABL) will be given for the first time in October and is a significant departure from the previous, IQ-like test most New York City private schools required for the past 45 years.
While the new test is much cheaper for families — it's $65, rather than $568 for the old test, because the new test is taken by iPad rather than by a trained examiner — experts believe many parents will shell out even more on classes and books to prepare their toddlers for it.
"These are subjects that were not previously tested," said Emily Glickman, president of Abacus Guide Educational Consulting, who advises parents on private school admissions.
"The AABL is supposed to identify a child's ability and achievement," Glickman said. "That achievement part — how much you learned — is totally new. You usually think of an achievement test as something you take in high school. It's not something you think of for preschoolers."
So far, only Horace Mann and Riverdale Country School have announced plans to use the new exam, but experts believe more may follow.

I don’t know what’s up with those flags and I’m about the smartest feller on the planet.
Good thing the authors weren’t required to take grammar to pass the “headline test”.
I’d rather see how snobby, liberal, and arrogant the graduates turn out.
4 out of 5
Do I get a cookie?
Test are only used to stereotype my child.
My child prefers an informal classroom where creativity is encourage, not test.
If humblegunner is having a problem with it, I ain’t even trying.
How does that test measure math or literacy at all?
I think you need a nap.
The correct answer is don’t waste your time.
If you take it you are admitting that you are allowing someone else to arbitrarily pass judgement on your intelligence and experience.
Contrived by pinheads.
Over educated and under informed.
Guess I’m just not a team player.
No biscuit for me.
creativity is normal for kids, it doesn’t need to be taught
Perhaps your tagline explains why you would post “achieving” an 80% on a test for 4 year olds?
At 5 years old, not so easy.
I want to know the logic for selecting the ‘correct’ answer for #2
Four out of five, but only because I firmly disagree with the correct answer in the last question. Whoever made the key skipped a step in matching the pictures to the text.
Did you take the test ?
What's the answer to #2 ... and why ?
Does this have anything to do with Common Core?
Well Bill, if you are so msart how come you married Hillary? Hell the little lezzie would have shacked up without a ring.
"We have immigration laws for what reason children?"
"So they can be broken!"
"Oh Billy, you are absolutely correct, so they can be broken! You get an A and a hammer and sickle pin!! Now come on children, let's sing praise be to our Dear Leader Obama!"
"Obamas gonna change it...rearrange it..."
Right hand shaded square.
All other shapes halfshaded are shaded on the right hand side.
I'm John, I married Katherine.
Hell the little lezzie would have shacked up without a ring.
Is there some point you wish to make to me?
Otherwise, it sure looks like you are just pulling some mess out of your bunghole.
As snobby as you can imagine. I use to live in Queens and had a water delivery route in Manhattan which I like to call the “A-hole capital of the world” because it is which is why Obama constantly visits. The kids use to berate the door men for not opening the door fast enough for them. “Excuse me, but what is your job again?” Stuff like that and the kid would be like 11 years old. Little freakin’ d*ckweeds.
Square, oval, and circle on each line.
With no shading, cross-shading, and half-shading.
Missing on third line, half-shaded square.
Stoopit test. What’s the point?
You get a gold star. If you get five stars in a week you get a cookie. No milk, just a cookie.
I got it! The answer is 42.
It also works if you look at the rows instead of the columns, and if you divide into corners and a diagonal. Regardless of how you slice it up, the lower right corner is “right-half shaded square”.
The other two open shapes are not identicle to their opposites (open oval/right shaded circle ... open circle/right shaded oval)
logically, the open square should be opposed by another shape (albeit right shaded)
another view I saw was a variance of a magic square .. (impossible with nine cubes, but doable with sixteen, which is why I rejected THAT view.)
I know the correct answer is right shaded square,but I disagree with that answer ... right shaded oblong perhaps, but not a duplicate of shape.
That's my story and I'm s s s s tickin' TO it.
OK ... THAT makes sense ... and I didn’t see it.
Look at my #23 ... I DID look at the diagonals
does this mean I can’t go to kinnygahdin ?
Only a Square or a halfshaded shape fits the pattern.
A halfshaded square fits perfectly.
Thats my story and I’m sssssticken to it too. lol :)
Lower Left to Upper Right diagonal contains all three shapes, with only one type of shading, therefore the Upper Left to Lower Right diagonal must contain one shape with all three shadings.
No. You can't. You're permanently on the retard track, where you'll be stuffed full of psychotropic drugs and waterboarded daily until you confess with all your heart that Michell 0bama is the most beautiful woman in the entire history of humanity ... a veritable sex goddess.
Be very afraid.
Then you're obviously related to him........
This is Spinal Test!
Does it go up to 11?
5/5. Are you smarter than a 5 year old? Nice to know I am...
They don't ..
open, hourglass and halfshade, as opposed to three hoiurglasses.
I got them all right. Now I’ll test Frank ;-).
You'll see them running the country and shifting the culture further and further left, sort of like the way they've been doing it for the past 50+ years while watching powerless conservatives that bitterly dismiss intellectuals.
These silly internet quizzes are probably NSA-sponsored anyway. All the problems were very straightforward except for number 2. Not terribly difficult, but not kindergarten material. Get that one right, get logged into a special "database".
You slipped out from under them, at least this time. :)
In kindergarten they stop at 9.
Is that you...Jean Le Fleur????
So UL -> LR must be one shape with open, hourglass, right-half-shade. Since the center object is a square, UL and LR must also be squares.
That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it. Don't wanna have to drool over Michelle ...
Frank (who is 5) got two right, and I’m pretty sure he was guessing on one.
