The newly revised Identifying
Gifted Students: A Practical Guide
is aligned with both the updated
National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) Pre-K–Grade 12 Gifted Program
Standards and the NAGC and The Association for the Gifted, Council for
Exceptional Children (CEC-TAG) professional development standards.

Identifying Gifted Students is relevant in any setting that intends
to meet standards for gifted children and uses multiple assessments to identify
gifted students within an increasingly diverse population. This book:

  • aligns
    with gifted education standards

  • helps
    practising professionals build an effective, defensible identification process

  • provides
    information on culturally fair and non-biased approaches to assessment

  • offers
    a complete summary of commonly used assessment instruments.

Designed for practising professionals such as teachers,
counsellors, psychologists and administrators, Identifying Gifted Students addresses definitions, models and
characteristics of gifted students; qualitative and quantitative approaches to
assessment; culturally fair and non-biased assessment; and how to evaluate the
effectiveness of identification procedures. In addition, the book provides a
complete summary of all major assessment instruments, including scoring
information, reliability and validity.
