Let's Cut Out the Cut-Off Score in the Identification of the Gifted.
Kirschenbaum, Robert J.
Roeper Review, v5 n4 p6-10 Apr-May 1983
The use of IQ scores as criteria for entry into gifted programs is criticized. Difficulties in test interpretation are noted, as are factors biasing the performance of culturally different students. The author cites flaws with intelligence, achievement, and creativity tests and suggests that locally designed and normal methods are preferable. (CL)
