Watson, Odell A., Comp.; Tongue, Cornelia, Comp.
Presented is the revised edition of a 1974 booklet on suggestions for identifying gifted and talented students. The gifted/talented student is reported to exhibit exceptionality in the areas of learning, motivation, creativity, and leadership, although few students are found to demonstrate all of these behaviors. Suggestions for identification are listed which include the use of a teacher-made observational check list. The following evaluation devices are also provided: the Renzulli-Hartman Scale for Rating Behavioral Characteristics of Superior Students, Checklist for Kindergarten, Checklist for First Grade Pupils, Checklist for Grades 2-6, Characteristics of Talented Pupils-Checklist, Student's Classroom and Individual Talent Inventories, Checklist for Recommending Gifted and Creative Students, Student Evaluation Sheet, and Composite Student Evaluation Profile. Also noted are standardized tests which may be considered for identifying the gifted and talented. (SB)
