How are skills assessed by the CAT4?
- The CAT4 is a very accurate marker of innate academic potential.
- Hence, academically selective independent secondary schools in the independent education sector are often interested in each applicant’s CAT4 scores.
- The key CAT4 summary statistic is its Standard Age Score; an adjustment of each pupil’s raw score for age.
- It is this CAT4 SAS which then enables age-adjusted CAT4 scores to be put on a continuous CAT4 score scale.
- That in turn allows comparisons to be made with a nationally representative CAT 4 sample. This is a nationally representative pupil sample of the same school age.
So, why practice CAT4?
- The average score is 100.
- A child scoring 126 or above is likely to be performing in the top 4% of children of the same age.

How are non-verbal reasoning skills assessed by the CAT4 ?
The specific CAT4 sections assess visualisation skills; the ability to
- create and retain a firm mental image of a shape
- representing angles and lengths accurately.
In fact, the eight CAT sections assesses a different set of reasoning skills. These can be examined:
- firstly in terms of the four major aptitude tests for skills in numerical, verbal, spatial and non-verbal reasoning.
- secondly in terms of how the CAT4 also assesses the additional working memory and processing skills abilities.
Both these CAT 4 skills taxonomy approaches are well-supported in the aptitude research theory and skills literature.
Non-Verbal Reasoning CAT4 section(s) which measure CAT4 non-verbal reasoning using a variety of symbols and patterns.
All CAT4 sub-sections measure:
- Processing Speed which is a pupil’s skills at processing / responding to visual and auditory info.
- Working Memory which is a pupil’s skills at holding / manipulating info within their individual short-term memory capacity.
