An Identification Model: Gifted and Talented.
Tongue, Cornelia; Sperling, Charmian
Presented is a model designed to aid school personnel in identifying gifted and talented children. In the chapter on problems and challenges of identification, the inadequacies of standardized group intelligence tests are pointed out and factors contributing to the broadening of the concept of giftedness are outlined. Stressed in chapter 2, on developing a logical plan, is the interrelatedness of three program components: identification, curriculum, and staff development. Listed in chapter 3 are several authors' descriptions of the gifted student. Provided in the final chapter is a matrix for identifying the mainstreamed or culturally different gifted student on the basis of test data, performance data, and developmental data in five talent categories: academic/intellectual, artistic/expressive, leadership/psychosocial, divergent production/processes, and kinesthetic. Appendixes include a list of tests and instruments for identifying gifted and talented students, sample behavior rating scales and checklists, and forms for preparing a composite student evaluation profile.
