Overview

The ACER General Ability Tests (AGAT) is a series of tests designed to assist teachers of students aged seven to sixteen years (approximately Year 2 to Year 10) in their assessment of students’ general reasoning ability. There are nine AGAT tests that have been developed especially for use in schools.

Each of the tests assesses students’ reasoning skills in three areas:

  • Verbal
  • Numerical
  • Abstract (visual)
