The Development of a Culturally Fair Model for the Early Identification and Selection of Gifted Children: A Follow Up Study.
Storlie, Theodore R.; And Others
This paper presents the results of a study conducted as a follow-up to a joint project between the Flint Community Schools and the Educational Testing Service. In the project, a model for the identification and selection of gifted children was developed. The model sought to minimize the biases operating in more traditional identification procedures which result in an under-representation of children from less-advantaged environments. Statistical tests were conducted to test for differences between groups of children selected by the old process and by the new process. Additionally, differences were sought between students selected as eligible for the gifted program and students who were identified as potentially gifted, but who did not pass through the final selection stage. Chi-sqare analyses indicated that the new process resulted in a pool of gifted children which was more representative of the total school population than was achieved by the old process. (Author/RLV)
