This study aimed to standardize the Cognitive Abilities Screening Test (CogAT) Form Seven for identifying gifted and talented children ages five-eight years in Jordan. A sample of 280 students was randomly chosen from public and private elementary schools and kindergartens in the city of Amman, the capital city of Jordan, and used teachers' nomination for gifted students. The results indicated significant and high reliability correlations for the total score of the two-time administration (r = .927) and highly significant internal consistency reliability correlations where Alpha coefficients were .941 for the subtest scores and .962 for the total score and split-half reliability was .904 for the subtest scores and .927 for the total score. Furthermore, the content validity results demonstrated unanimous agreement among reviewers (6 experts and 10 teachers) about the translation match of the original test, suitability to Jordanian culture, and extracting and interpreting the results. One the other hand, the criterion validity results showed that there were no significant correlations (r = .434) between the Arabic version of CogAT Screening Test results and teachers' nomination of gifted students.
