Lies We Live by: Misapplication of Tests in Identifying the Gifted.
Sternberg, Robert J.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v26 n4 p157-61 Fall 1982
The author points out the limited usefulness of standardized tests in identifying gifted students. Research is cited to dispute common assumptions underlying many tests, including that speed is important, that intelligence is last year's achievement, and that testing must be conducted in an anxiety producing situation.
