District Self Analysis Instrument...Establishing Baseline Data for Gifted and Talented Programs and Practices...1982.
Chuska, Kenneth R.; And Others
The instrument is designed for use as a self-assessment for districts to facilitate goal setting with regard to the provision of services to gifted and talented students. The items are based on research, common operational practices, and exemplary practices. Districts are asked to respond to items in terms of degree of importance and degree of implementation in their schools, with a discrepancy factor resulting. Items are then rank ordered and prioritized, and goals are established. The following aspects are analyzed: general practices, the arts for the talented, English/communication, foreign language, mathematics, reading, science, social studies, spelling, teacher education, parent education, and teacher selection. It is noted that the instrument is not intended for program evaluation, but rather for use in improving programs and practices. (CL)
