Gifted Child Quarterly, v42 n1 p5-15 Win 1998
This study explored individual, family, and school-related factors contributing to underachievement among 56 gifted students (grades four to eight). Comparison of four models found the complex model incorporating all three factors best fit the data. The importance of an ecological approach to problems of underachievement is stressed. Intervention approaches deriving from each model are discussed. (DB)
