Talents Unlimited Program. Technical Report Summarizing Research Findings.
Chissom, Brad S.; McLean, James E.
Talents Unlimited (TU) is an educational program based in Mobile, Alabama, and developed under an Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III grant. The program was validated nationally over three years and is now part of the National Diffusion Network. Six areas of talent were identified: productive thinking; forecasting; decision making; planning; communication; and academic ability. Changes in students in grades one through six were measured by a series of ten specially developed criterion referenced tests and achievement tests. Programs were also developed and tested, in other school districts, for talented students in elementary and secondary grades. Overall results showed significant differences between the experimental groups involved in the TU program and the control groups. Currently, over 70 groups are involved in TU programs. (MH)
