Identification of Gifted Minority Group Children.
Rodriguez, Richard F.; And Others
A study involving 12 elementary age Hispanic children identified as gifted and placed in a creative arts program investigated the issue of identifying gifted minority group children. Ss were administered the System of Multicultural Pluralistic Assessment (SOMPA) and the Cartoon Conservation Scales (CCS). Comparisons were made between teacher nominations and scores on the Estimated Learning Potential (ELP) of the SOMPA, scores on the CCS, and which instrument identified more children within the gifted range. ELP scores were more consistent than CCS scores in identifying gifted minority children who had been previously nominated by teachers. It was concluded that traditional standardized assessment measures alone do not adequately identify minority group gifted children. (SB)
