It used to be that intelligence and giftedness were solely based on I.Q. and test scores. As our understanding of giftedness and the brain has expanded, the means of assessing and identifying gifted students have also expanded. In this course, “Screening, Assessment, and Identification of the Gifted”, Joyce Juntune Ph.D., draws from her vast knowledge and experience in gifted education to present invaluable tools for identifying gifted students using a variety of different methods.
In this 6-hour course, you will learn about:
- Definitions and unique characteristics of giftedness
- The role of intelligence in gifted students
- Methods of screening students for signs of giftedness
- Suggestions and guidelines for gifted programs
- Scoring tests
- Differences between testing boys and girls
And much more!

All of the other courses on this topic were excellent. This course was too much of a repeat of what Dr. J had already said in the past. I felt like it wasted my time and I could have been learning more things to use in the classroom.

This course is really helpful in screening and identifying students who are gifted. There are many aspects to consider when referring a student and this course has really opened my eyes as to have second looks on students. Especially those who have a difficulty.
