Aural Reasoning: What To Expect?
‘Aural Reasoning’ questions assess a student’s ability to listen to, understand and visualize a question that is read aloud to him or her. These questions assess listening skills, visual vocabulary, and understanding about the characteristics and functions of things. They also measure the ability to pay close attention to details, and the ability to use logic and inferences to figure out the correct outcome and response.
Pre-K students taking the OLSAT® (for admission into Kindergarten) are asked approximately five of these types of questions.
Kindergarten students taking the OLSAT® (for admission into 1st Grade) are asked approximately 12 of these types of questions.
