A Kindergarten Screening Procedure for the Identification of Potentially Exceptional Children.
Herdman, John W.; Croyle, Grant
A screening procedure for the identification of potentially gifted kindergarten children was developed and tested with 350 students in rural Pennsylvania during the 1977-1978 school year. The screening procedure used the Slosson Drawing Coordination Test, the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts, the Draw-A-Man Test, and a teacher checklist. A total of 52 students were selected for individual evaluation based on the initial screening. The screening procedure was found to be useful in identifying children who were later found to be gifted, while teacher opinion alone was found to be inaccurate in identifying gifted children.
