Cummings Checklist of Characteristics of Gifted and Talented Children.
Cummings, William B.
The Cummings Checklist of Characteristics of Gifted and Talented Children (CC) was evaluated with 516 elementary age pupils. Teachers used the checklist to nominate students for the gifted program. Ss were classified as either Test (IQ) Identified Gifted (TIG), Non-Test Identified Gifted (NTIG), or not classified. Results indicated that (1) the CC did discriminate between gifted and nongifted students with 18 of the 31 items found to discriminate based on chi square analysis or discriminant function analysis, (2) the CC did not discriminate between TIG and NTIG students, and (3) a significantly higher proportion of students from racial minority groups was identified when the CC was included in the screening procedure. A copy of the checklist is attached. (DB)
