Analytical Studies of Selected Educational Data. Volume I of II.
Plantec, Peter M.; And Others
Analytical studies were made of three research efforts (an Advocate Survey, the School Staffing Survey, and Project TALENT) for the purpose of determining educational needs of gifted and talented children and youth. The Advocate Survey involved a questionnaire sent to 239 experts in special education for the gifted to determine current opinions in the field on educating the gifted. The School Staffing Survey, which included a representative sample of elementary and secondary public schools, provided statistical data on staffing and school services or programs available in the schools surveyed. It thus defined the actual state of education for the gifted. Project TALENT data were used to identify social and academic needs of the gifted. Data from Project TALENT, a longitudinal study of 400,000 students who were in high school in 1960, were derived from a 1960 questionnaire and from followup studies 1 and 5 years after graduation. The report contains a rationale for the analysis plan (define gifted, identify special needs, evaluate current programs, develop model program and implementation plans) and findings from the surveys and Project TALENT comparisons. A companion volume (EC 040 764) contains consultants' interpretations of findings. (KW)
