    Students currently enrolled in a Deer Valley school have the opportunity to be tested once a year for gifted identification. Testing is offered three times a year (Fall, Winter, Spring).   DVUSD uses the CogAT test.  The CogAt Test (Cognitive Abilities Test) is a reasoning and problem-solving test used to qualify kindergarten-12th-grade students for gifted programs.  The test has three areas (verbal, quantitative, and spatial thinking).  Students who score a the 97th percentile on the Cognitive Abilities Test (Or another approved test) will be placed in the appropriate program. Students scoring at the 95th percentile in verbal or quantitative will be placed on a provisional basis.
