Abstract (Summary)

Identifying students for gifted and talented programs can be a long and challenging task. Teachers of the gifted are faced with finding the correct students for these programs, sometimes using a mixture of traditional and nontraditional identification methods. As of right now, there is no way to identify students for these programs in the United States that is mutually agreed upon by everyone involved. Looking specifically at North Dakota, teachers are constantly searching for not only the right students for their gifted programs but also the most accurate way to identify students for such programs. The purpose of this study is to understand advantages and disadvantages of using multiple forms of assessment to identify gifted and talented students in North Dakota. The study’s findings are from an online survey completed by gifted and talented educators across North Dakota.
