Normalizing Data for Identification of Gifted Students

9780898247862: Normalizing Data for Identification of Gifted Students

This is a significant and practical contribution to gifted education: whether you're evaluating an existing gifted education program, initiating a new gifted program, or simply learning about the identification process.

The book outlines problems inherent in gifted identification procedures, then gives easy-to-understand, step-by-step instructions for implementing an alternative identification matrix. Included is a CD-ROM into which gifted coordinators can enter student test scores and begin using the method immediately.

Normalizing Data for Identification of Gifted Students simplifies the identification process and supports educators who are faced with the difficulty of including multiple test cycles and a variety of assessment instruments in their gifted identification procedures. It is also useful for school districts interested in disaggregating their student data, which is helpful when identifying under-served gifted populations. This is a valuable new resource that is being welcomed by teachers and administrators.
