A Partial Compendium of SOI Patterns on Sub-Groups of Gifted People.
Meeker, Mary
The paper reviews studies (1966-1985) of the intellectual abilities of culturally diverse 4-5 year olds in a discussion of the identification of giftedness in culturally diverse populations. Studies are cited which involved Mexican American, Black, Native American, French Canadian, and Belgian students. The following six topics are addressed: (1) identification procedures; (2) reliability and validity of SOI (Structure of Intellect) assessment instruments; (3) efficacy of SOI training; (4) measurement of growth in abilities after training; (5) measurement of growth in achievement after SOI training; and (6) construct validity (carryover of SOI training to improved performance in school subject matters). Figures depict two ways of showing giftedness, and the author emphasizes the value of reorganizing tested abilities and clustering them according to the SOI model. (CL)
