My son's school is asking if I would allow him to be given the Otis-Lennon Ability Test. Is this a good thing?

My 2nd grader was given the Cognitive Abilities Test. I received a letter from his school asking since he scored high enough to be assessed for giftedness in superior cognitive abilities would I allow him to be given the O-tis Lennon Ability Test, 8th edition.
Exactly what does this mean...what is superior cognitive abilities ...IS THIS A GOOD THING?

This is a good thing.  The Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) is basically an IQ test.  The school thinks your son is smart and wants to see how smart he is to see if he warrants special treatment.
