The article presents and illustrates use of an evaluation model for assessing programs for the gifted where tight experimental control is not possible. The model consists of four components: ex post factor designs including intact groups; comparative evaluation; strength of treatment; and multiple outcome assessment from flexible data sources. (DB)

Begin, Jean; Gagne, Francoys – Journal for the Education of the Gifted, 1994
Analysis of studies on predictors of people's attitudes toward gifted education reveals that about 50 variables have been examined as potential sources of differences, but not a single variable emerges as a substantial explanatory factor. Major methodological problems in the studies are identified and proposals for future research are offered.…

Ambrose, Don – Journal for the Education of the Gifted, 1998
A review of 50 articles on giftedness analyzed the degree to which four world views (contextualism, organicism, formism, and mechanism) shape the thinking of scholars in the field. Results indicate philosophical biases toward contextualism and organicism in terms of subject-matter emphasis and a bias toward mechanism in the preferred research…

Stanley, T. D.; Robinson, Ann – Journal for the Education of the Gifted, 1986
The article suggests ways to make use of regression discontinuity to plan, implement, and evaluate gifted programs. It outlines how research data can illuminate rather than obscure program decisions. Making efficient use of multiple criteria identification data is discussed along with making program effectiveness decisions without using a control…
