Cross, Tracy L.; Cross, Jennifer Riedl – Roeper Review, 2017
In this response to Sternberg's article, "ACCEL: A New Model for Identifying the Gifted," we agree that IQ testing may have outlasted its usefulness as an identification tool for gifted students.

No literature on engendering as a form of giftedness and creativity…
