How do I use MEWCATS worksheets?
First, print out blank answer-sheets for your child or student to use (answer-sheet templates can be found on the Mewsel website). Then, open MEWCATS on a tablet or a computer screen, and go to the section you want to work on. Have your child/student solve the problems and enter their answers on the answer-sheet. We recommend that you check their answers on the Mewsel website (you can print out the answers if needed), and correct as needed. Remember, practice makes perfect!
MEWCATS has more than 1000 questions that cover important areas of cognitive development. These should also help in preparing for tests that check for cognitive abilities and thinking skills. The Mewsel website also has many sample questions to help get started.
MEWCATS covers the following sections: verbal, spatial, analytical, and the fundamental concepts of time, money, charts, length/distance, and fractions.
The verbal section touches upon parts of speech, vocabulary, sentence completion, verbal analogies, and verbal classification.
The spatial section touches upon figure patterns (black/white and colored), figure groups/classification, figure sequences, spatial analogies, and paper folding/ cutting/unfolding.
The analytical section touches upon number series/patterns, quantitative comparisons, and numbers-operators-equations.
The various fundamental concepts sections go into depths of the specific concept – each in a series of seven question sets.
MEWCATS wraps up the above with forty question sets that are comprehensive and hence cover concepts in verbal, analytical, spatial, and general thinking in each set (each set has nine questions).
MEWCATS uses questions that children have to answer to drive their thinking skills and cognitive abilities. Parent/Teacher participation is strongly recommended. MEWCATS also often uses color, so using a color “reader/tablet” is recommended. MEWCATS can also be used on a computer.
Mewcats and Mewsel are focused on developing IQ, cognitive abilities, and thinking skills in children and a variety of tests are used around the world to understand these abilities. Some of the well-known tests are: Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC and WISC-IV)), Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI and WPPSI-III), Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT-II), Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales (SB5), Woodcock-Johnson III (WJ-III), Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT and CAT), Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS), Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT), Otis Lennon School Abilities Test (OLSAT-8), Ravens Progressive Matrices, and Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (KABC).
The exposure to the concepts covered in MEWCATS will lay the foundation on which children will build upon as they progress to higher grades. A strong foundation in early years will make them more effective in the future years.
