Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Special Education.
This document is intended to provide Ohio State school district personnel with information about approved assessment instruments for the screening and identification of students who are gifted. Instruments listed are intended to identify students in each of four gifted ability areas: superior cognitive ability, specific academic ability, creative thinking ability, and visual or performing arts ability. Preliminary information explains requirements for district adoption of approved assessment instruments, how a district should decide which instruments to use, who should administer the selected instruments, rules for the administration of tests and assessment instruments, standards for gifted identification in each of the four areas, and instrument selection criteria. Also provided is the "Code of Fair Testing Practices in Education" developed by the American Psychological Association. A chart of the 55 approved instruments summarizes information on each test's intended use, area of specialization, type, and administration (individual or group). One page of descriptive information is then provided for each instrument including publisher, Web site, instrument uses, instrument type, age level, administration time, identification/screening criteria, scoring information available, and date of norming. An appendix lists instruments by grade level and special population norm groups. A second appendix provides copies of the PB-3 and Forms SI and SII from the "Model Policies and Plan for the Identification of Children Who Are Gifted," for districts to submit. (Contains 23 references.) (DB)
