​Santa Barbara, California  

At the 2015 National Association for Gifted Children Conference, Pearson announced the next generation of the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT), the widely used measure to identify gifted and talented K-4 students. The NNAT3 features new content, updated normative data, and a new and user-friendly online interface that is optimized for administering the assessment with a tablet.

Used by gifted and talented educators, testing coordinators, special education teachers, school psychologists and bilingual educators, the NNAT is a nationally normed, reliable nonverbal test, that provided a consistent way to screen all students without language or culture being a barrier. This provides a nonverbal, culturally neutral assessment of general ability that is ideal for use with diverse student populations.​
