Educational Programs for the Gifted and Talented: Survey.
Weber, Sylvia E.
To investigate educational programs for gifted and talented students in Alberta, Canada, a survey of 106 school boards was conducted. Analysis of the responses are offered for each of 21 survey questions and are compared with responses from the Canadian Education Association survey of 586 Canadian school boards. Among findings are that independent study rated as the most popular program type in Canada while Alberta preferred the special education part time classes, that educators in both surveys indicated that high performance was the most important criterion, and that Alberta tends to begin its program for gifted and talented students earlier than the rest of Canada. Appended are the goals of basic education for Alberta, a sample survey form, and tables with statistical data. (SB)
