A lot of people have been inquiring about the transformation of the NNAT to the NNAT®2. Some of the major changes include the expansion of the test from 38 questions to 48, as well as the addition of a section on spatial visualization. Despite this increase in questions, the child still only has 30 minutes to complete it. This is a greater challenge in itself.
A large part of the test’s expansion is due to the addition of a new category of questions: spatial visualization. These questions require the student to identify how multiple designs would look if combined. The student discerns the correct answer by piecing together the images in the boxes above or to the left of the empty box, in order to determine what the image would look like if the elements are combined. These types of questions are complex, since they involve square rotations or the intersection of shapes in ways that could be difficult to visualize.
To the right is an example of a spatial visualization question your child might see on the NNAT®2:
It’s very important for parents to prepare for this new challenging category and to make sure that they are getting material that is updated with the NNAT®2 title.
