Description
This intermediate workshop informs participants on best practices in gifted identification and assessment and debunks prevailing myths about giftedness (e.g., gifted is the same as high IQ). The workshop introduces the new neuroscience literature on talent development; the tripartite model of gifted and talented; and what constitutes a comprehensive, ethically defensible, and best-practices test battery for gifted identification and assessment.
Learning Objectives
1. Provide an operational definition for giftedness, as distinct from intelligence and creativity.
2. Articulate a comprehensive gifted assessment test battery protocol to determine whether a student qualifies in her/his school district for the classification of gifted and talented.
3. List three prevalent myths in the gifted field and cite scientific evidence to discredit and expose each myth.
4. Explain why a disability can mask that a student might otherwise be gifted.
