What is on the Gifted and Talented Test for CPS - Update

I read an old article where the group at IIT who gives the test, and maintains an impenetrable wall of secrecy, comments on the testing process.

While reading tea leaves, I noted that the director of the program made this comment (I'm paraphrasing): the best predictor of future academic success is current academic success.   I'm going to interpret that to mean that there is a correlation between the content and experience of the test and the content and experience of the gifted program.

Research consistently shows that the best statistical measure of future academic performance is current academic performance. 

In a recent post, I laid out my current strategy for Gifted and Talented test preparation.  This strategy is based squarely my theory that there is a correlation between the GAT test and the GAT program.
