G/T Identification and Sci-Fi Matchmaking: More Similar than They Should Be.
Bartek, Mary M.
Understanding Our Gifted, v15 n3 p10-11 Spr 2003
Using a sci-fi matchmaking scenario to illustrate the fallibility of technology, this article discusses the practice of reducing a student to a series of test scores for gifted identification. The limits of testing are addressed, and student performance and behavior are urged as additional categories for identifying aptitude and achievement. (Contains 4 references.) (CR)
