A Discrepancy Model for Meeting the Program Needs of the Gifted and Talented.
A discrepancy model is proposed as one way to meet the program needs of gifted and talented students. The model incorporates processes which first identify strengths then those academic or other talents in which the student shows limited or no ability. The third aspect of the model calls for identification of those areas in which the individual lacks experience, interest, exposure, or opportunities to develop motivation. The resulting profile of strengths, discrepancies, and nonexperience may help prevent excessively early specialization and help program appropriate tasks. Sample forms and interview instruments are included. (CL)
