Arabic Verbal Reasoning Trial 2022

Registration now open

This year GL Education will be conducting a trial of verbal reasoning items which have been developed in Arabic to assess students' verbal reasoning skills in Arabic.  It is essential that we trial each of the items to ensure they measure students accurately and could be used in a live assessment.

We are looking for students in grades 1 to 12 to take part in our autumn 2022 trial.  The digital test can be taken on iPad, tablet, Chromebook and PC and will take around 1 hour to complete.

What is Arabic Verbal Reasoning?

Verbal reasoning questions assess reasoning ability with words which represent objects or concepts. Scores in verbal reasoning usually reflect students' ability to use words as a medium of thought.  The trial does require some reading ability to be able to understand the questions.  Whilst reading skills are not the basis of the assessment itself, general verbal and word knowledge form part of the assessment.

When is the trial taking place?

The trial is taking place from 3rd to 21st October 2022 in the UAE. We are recruiting schools from 13th June 2022 and recommend early registration as we have limited spaces.  We are really keen to accommodate as many schools as we can. If you have any queries about the trial, please get in touch with [email protected] or your account manager if you have any queries.

  • Will I receive reports after the trial?

Once we have all the data from the trial, we will share the reports at group and student level so you can see how students responded to each question.
