The SCAT is the registered trade mark of ETS. Author of this practice has not seen any of the tests. But author has the SCAT sample mini test from Johns Hopkins University CTY. I studied the mini test to be familiar with the question format and pattern. Then I created many practice questions for my son to be familiar with the test. My son was 6 years old and in grade 2 in a private school. I used this practice for him 2 times. He scored 99% for Math section of SCAT test. That is 99% comparing with 4th grader nationwide. In the following video, I showed my son's SCAT scores together with CogAT and NNAT scores. If this youtube video is not available, please see the following scanned documents: SCAT result and CogAT/NNAT result.
