Focusing Attention on the Individual in Identification of Gifted Black Students.
Rhodes, Lora
Roeper Review, v14 n3 p108-10 Mar 1992
African-American children are minimally represented in gifted programs due to misconceptions of giftedness, problems associated with standardized testing, perceptions of African-American students' low achievement, and lack of awareness of characteristics of African-American achievers. Individually focused identification of gifted African-American students is recommended, through teacher observations, assessment of family background information, peer evaluations, and culturally diverse tests.
