Do Tests and Examinations Alienate the Gifted Student?
Smith, David J. H.
Gifted Education International, v4 n2 p101-05 1986
Assessment via tests and examinations may be viewed as burdensome, coercive, and irrelevant by gifted students. Teachers can help students overcome negative attitudes toward assessment by: assessing students' best (as opposed to typical) efforts; involving students in planning and developing the assessment program; and providing specific, constructive feedback.
