Twissell, Adrian
Design and Technology Education, v16 n2 p20-32 2011
This study examines whether MidYIS and YELLIS cognitive ability tests (CATs) are appropriate methods for the identification of giftedness in Design and Technology. A key rationale for the study was whether CATs and able to identify those students with the aptitudes considered of importance to identifying giftedness in Design and Technology and their use in connection with target setting. Consideration is given to the use of creativity and the nonverbal element of CATs as alternative methods of identification. (Contains 2 tables and 6 figures.)
