The Performance of "Gifted" High School Students in University.
Grayson, Paul J.
This study followed 513 graduates of regular, gifted, and private school programs in Ontario over 4 years as students at York University (Toronto). Overall, the study found that having participated in a gifted program in high school did not result in increased levels of achievement in university. However, it did find that graduates of gifted high school programs had slightly more positive self-concepts than other students in some areas. Tables summarize data on high school program by family income, grade point average, and by high school program and the following self-assessed skills: thinking and reasoning skills, problem solving skills, planning and organizing skills, communication skills, interpersonal skills, and quantitative skills.
