Gifted Students' Profiles and Their Attitudes towards a Gifted Program: The Case of Vietnam
Vu, Phu
Gifted and Talented International, v26 n1-2 p81-87 2011
This study describes a gifted program and examines issues related to gifted students' profiles and their attitudes towards an English specialized program in Vietnam. The data were collected via an online survey and analyzed through descriptive statistics in order to identify patterns of agreement and disagreement between two groups of 60 current and 30 former gifted students. The results indicate that the majority of the participants came from well-educated families and that family influences and traditions had a great impact on their choice of the program. Furthermore, most of them expressed satisfaction with the quality of their English major at the school and appreciated its usefulness for their further study and career. The findings were interpreted in view of their implications for further development and modifications of this program to better meet the increasing demands of students, parents and the whole society.
