Can the Brigance K & 1 Screen Detect Cognitive/Academic Giftedness When Used with Preschoolers from Economically Disadvantaged Backgrounds?
Mantzicopoulos, Panayota Y.
Roeper Review, v22 n3 p185-91 Apr 2000
The accuracy of the Brigance K&1 Screen in the early identification of Head Start children with possible cognitive/academic giftedness was explored with 134 children, 13 of whom were identified as potentially gifted on the K-ABC. These potentially gifted children also performed significantly better on the Brigance than did other children. Teacher ratings were ineffective in detecting potentially gifted children.
