Caveat Emptor: Creative, Gifted, and Talented Are Different Entities.
Sloat, Robert S.
To clear up some of the existing confusion in gifted education terminology, the paper suggests several alternative ways of looking at the terms talented, creative, and gifted, with particular emphasis on the last two. Noted among distinctions are that the gifted have a global intellectual ability, the creative have the ability to produce new/unique imaginative products/ideas/solutions, and the talented have ability in a specific area. Other distinctions between the gifted and creative are listed. A model which takes into account interrelationships among gifted, talented, and creative ability is suggested. (SB)
