Sternberg, Robert J. – Roeper Review, 2018
Giftedness in science today is largely measured by various kinds of standardized tests--IQ tests, SATs, ACTs, GREs, and so forth. For example, many STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) gifted programs rely at least in part on IQ tests or the SAT for identifying students as gifted. It might be useful to supplement such standard measures…
