Project Talented and Gifted Second Evaluation Report: ESEA Title III Region II.
Presented in the annual (1974-75) evaluation of Project Talented and Gifted are results of an appraisal of over 50 student participants (10- to 12-years-old) and the project staff and resource personnel. The project is described as a 3-month institute to provide experiences in areas such as learning to use creative thinking and problem-solving strategies in language arts, science and mathematics, and music. Results and recommendations from the first evaluation are outlined and instruments used for the second evaluation are described in three sections: the experiment, student perceptions, and other sources. Reported are findings which included that Ss showed significant improvement in verbal originality and figural flexibility; that Ss improved in the areas of self-strength and individually; and compared to Ss' self-perceptions in 1974, 1975 Ss' self-perceptions significantly improved in environmental sensitivity, initiative, self-strength, individuality, and intellectuality. Recommendations for the project's third year are noted which include the continued encouragement of effective use of the library. (SB)
