The Reliability and Validity of a Korean-Translated Version of the Gifted Rating Scales
Lee, Donghyuck; Pfeiffer, Steven I.
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v24 n3 p210-224 2006
This study examined the reliability and validity of a Korean-translated version of the Gifted Rating Scales--School Form (GRS-S) and explored the effect of gender, rater, and grade. Data were collected from elementary schools in a metropolitan area and a midsize town in South Korea. In all, 49 elementary school teachers and 272 parents participated in the study; 257 students were independently rated on the GRS-S by teachers and parents. Results indicate high reliability for both teacher and parent ratings and substantial correlations with students' school performance. Results reveal no effect of rater or grade on any of the scales and small but significant differences in favor of females on four of the six GRS-S scales rated by teachers and five of the six scales rated by parents. The study provides preliminary support for a translated version of the GRS-S with elementary students in Korea. (Contains 7 tables.)
