The Role of Peer Nomination Forms in the Identification of Lower Elementary Gifted and Talented Students
Kaya, Fatih
Educational Research and Reviews, v8 n24 p2260-2269 Dec 2013
The purpose of the current study was to determine if the Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scale (RIAS) scores, as standardized IQ scores, correlate with the children's judgments of their classmates' intelligence, as peer nomination scores, in terms of their power to identify intellectually superior children. Guess Who: Peer Nomination Form (GWPNF) was developed for the purpose of this study and administered to 103 elementary students within a school district. This study included 39 2nd graders, 10 3rd graders, and 54 4th graders from 10 classrooms of two different elementary schools. The results of correlation analyses indicated that there was a statistically significant correlation between peer nomination scores and nonverbal intelligence scores (r = 291), with the correlation being higher in the lower graders. These promising results suggested the use of the GWPNF as a secondary source of information and a revision and optimization of the GWPNF to observe higher correlation in its further use.
