SAGES-P: A New Instrument in the Identification of Young Gifted Children.
Johnsen, Susan K.; Corn, Anne L.
The Screening Assessment for Gifted Elementary Students-Primary Version (SAGES-P) developed by S. K. Johnsen and A. L. Corn (1992) is a reliable and valid instrument for the identification of young gifted children. The SAGES-P addresses the U.S. Department of Education's guidelines for the identification of young gifted children. The items were developed with gifted children. Normative data are provided by chronological age (5.0 years to 8.11 years) for both normal and gifted children. Its two subtests, Reasoning and General Information, correlate strongly with other instruments used in identifying gifted children and provide subtest scores in areas generally accepted as integral components of curricula for gifted children. The SAGES-P was standardized with 1,034 gifted children in 19 states and 2,581 normal children in 19 states. One figure illustrates the SAGES-P schema. Six tables present study data. Data for a report presented at the Sixth Annual Texas Testing Conference are included, and there is a 21-item list of references. (Author/SLD)
