Identifying Gifted Students: Guidelines for School Districts.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Education for the Gifted and Talented.
These guidelines are intended to help New York State school districts: (1) develop procedures for identifying gifted students and (2) use the information obtained through identification procedures as a basis for deciding how educational programs and services can be modified to serve the students. Initial sections of the manual define giftedness and consider a philosophy of gifted education. Organizational aspects addressed include establishment of an identification team, identification of sources of data, and orientation of the staff. The identification process itself is described in terms of screening, referral, and in-depth assessment. A note on the realities of providing gifted education briefly explores the negative impact of limited resources on the identification process. (CL)
