Gifted and/or Talented Target Population and Identification Process: Matrix of Student Characteristics and Data Sources, 1988-89. Evaluation Report.
Claus, Richard N.; Quimper, Barry E.
The paper identifies characteristics of gifted and talented children. A matrix is presented listing gifted/talented student characteristics crossed with possible information sources for determining giftedness (i.e., test data, performance data, and developmental data). Appendix pages then provide details of various tests that are available to aid the identification process. In the category of cognitive ability, tests listed include individual and group intelligence tests, aptitude tests, achievement tests, and creative and critical thinking skills tests. Affective data may be assessed through self-concept tests and personality tests. Psychomotor tests are also included. The appropriate age or grade level for each test is cited, and subtests of each test are noted.(JDD)
