Should you guess on the Olsat?

The official guideline from the publisher is that students should not guess if they do not know the answer – that random guessing compromises the validity of the scores. However, the OLSAT score is calculated based on the number of right answers and the student is not penalized for incorrect answers.

Accordingly, what is a good score on the Olsat?

The publisher of the test describes the score in this way: “The SAI, with a mean of 100 and standard deviation of 16, is an easy-to-understand indicator of a student's standing relative to his or her age peers.” The ceiling or highest score for the OLSAT is 150. The average score is 100.

Subsequently, question is, does Olsat measure IQ? The OLSAT® is not a school ability test, a cognitive ability test or an IQ test. Your child's OLSAT® test score will give you an idea of how smart they are but it isn't an IQ score.

Also to know is, is Olsat accurate?

Aeh is the expert, and absolutely correct. The OLSAT measures ability, in fact SAI stands for School Ability Index. The OLSAT is not considered an IQ test, it is a used as a group screener test that catches some kids who are gifted and children who are high achievers.
