Myth: Your Sample Must Be the Same as the Population!
Treffinger, Donald J.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v26 n1 p15-16 Win 1982
The author suggests that it is a myth of gifted education that a school must identify a certain percentage of students as gifted, which forces an adjustment in criteria and definition until just the right number of students have been identified. (CL)
