The growing importance of Gifted and Talented programs is taking many young parents in the United States by a storm. Every parent wants their child to be the next Sheldon Cooper. These programs are very challenging and often require a thorough screening process in the form of tough entrance exams. What’s worse, due to limited seats, the exams are becoming more competitive year after year. Fret not! Here’s where 98thPercentile’s SMART comes to rescue.
SMART, or School Math and Reasoning Test, is an Olympiad event that assesses students in mathematical reasoning and data interpretation. SMART’s aim is to develop students academically while also encouraging pride for outstanding intellectual performance!
SMART’s platform prepares students for more than 20 national standard exams, including TEA, STAR and ITBS.
SMART requires students to solve problems using variables and different operations, which is a critical skill of everyday life.
Students develop confidence by competing with their peers as they answer questions accurately and quickly.
The top 3 winners are featured in a digital press release including an interview and blog post about their experience.
The competition will consist of questions from 3-4 categories, depending on grade level. 98thPercentile SMART Grades 1 & 2 contenders will be asked about verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, and quantitative aptitude.

Finding the solution to a problem is the second step, but realizing it exists is the first. SMART will help parents understand the level of their child’s cognitive ability skills. The event acts as a practice session for future accelerated and gifted program entrance exams. While those tests may be in the future, 98thPercentile is proud to currently help many gifted students achieve their future goals every day.
