Due to their complex nature, it can be hard for applied researchers and practitioners to understand them or even acquire information about them beyond what is provided in technical manuals. In this article, we provide information regarding the background and derivation of W scores that…

Self-instruction is a pivotal skill that promotes independence and self-determination by allowing individuals to independently access prompts during the acquisition of new skills while decreasing the need for support from another person. Self-mediated video modeling (SMVM) and video self-prompting (VSP) are two methods of video-based…

Simonton, Dean Keith – Roeper Review, 2017
In his target article, Sternberg (2017) quite rightly criticizes the approach to identifying giftedness that was initiated by Terman's (1925-1959) classic prospective study of high-IQ children. Sternberg then recommends a number of novel approaches to both identification and education. Nonetheless, this commentator recommends that future…

Sriraman, Bharath – Roeper Review, 2017
Sternberg (2017) summarizes the history of identification of giftedness in the 20th century and presents a case for the shortcomings of measures such as IQ for problem-solving skills required in the 21st century. The Active Concerned Citizenship and Ethical Leadership (ACCEL) model is proposed to replace the outdated construct of IQ, particularly…
