DATS (Differentiated Aptitude Tests) Third Years

DATS Tests for Third Years
06-January-20

This applies to current Third Year students only.

This coming week all 3rd Year students will be completing the DATS (Differentiated Aptitude Tests).

Schedule as follows:

Wed 8th Jan (Da Vinci/Gaudi) P1-4

Thurs 9th Jan (Jellet/Kahlo)P1-4

Fri 10th (Monet/Picasso)P1-4

The DATs measure a students ability in 8 areas: Verbal Reasoning; Numerical Reasoning; Abstract Reasoning; Perceptual Speed and Accuracy; Mechanical Reasoning; Spatial Reasoning; Spelling; and Language Usage and an Overall Educational Aptitude Score which is indicative of their ability to engage with the Curriculum.

An individual report with their results will give us a National Percentile Ranking in each of the 8 areas. Students will then be receiving their DAT results through a One to One appt that Parents/Guardians attend. (Week beginning March 9th)
The appt will last 10 mins approx and students will receive a detailed breakdown of their results and how it can inform, along with their CAT4 Scores, their LC Subject choices.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
