Assessment tools for gifted children: Screening, identification, and evaluation


No Child Left Behind has increased our national focus on testing, but even with the development of new and purportedly culture-fair instruments, many potentially gifted students continue to be overlooked. These students deserve instructional emphasis that fulfills their potential. This book provides information on numerous assessment instruments designed to screen, identify, and evaluate pre-K–12th grade students. Of particular interest are those instruments that assess students in academic, intellectual, creative, artistic, and leadership domains. It includes information on norming data, technical data, appropriateness for use with gifted and talented students, and publication information within a comprehensive inventory of relevant information for each test profiled.
