Students who score well on the screening test are considered for special educational programming and their needs, interests, and abilities are matched with the services that the school offers. But what about talented students who slip through the cracks of current screening methods. In this 1-hour course David Lohman, Ph.D., shares tools to design a screening program that avoids the twin pitfalls of failing to identify students who should be included or wrongly including students who do not need special services.
Dr. Lohman provides:
- Examples of exemplary practices
- The difference between identification and selection
- Distinctions between “gifted” and “talented”
- The elements of screening
- Common pitfalls illustrated using the CogAT Form 7 Screening Form
