Each year, thousands of gifted students go undiscovered in our classrooms. Without accurate identification, many of these students will never reach their full potential or benefit from the great resources available in our gifted programs. As teachers and educators in gifted education, one of our top priorities should be the screening, assessment, and identification of our gifted students.

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!

    I would give this five stars, however, the wording of two quiz questions was questionable. It made me second guess my responses, when my first guess was correct.

    I am a first year High school teacher. I do not have a teacher’s certificate b/c I am in the Career and Technical Education program. I am a Registered Nurse who has taught clinical nursing on the community college level. This course is geared more towards middle school and elementary school.

    I think this course was good, I think the overall layout of the website should be adjusted to further engage the audience.

  25. Abigail – COLLEGE STATION ISD (verified owner)

    There is some valuable information in this course, but some of the reasoning is woefully outdated. Additionally, the assessments are reflective of problems endemic in education, i.e., an overreliance on testing and pattern-recognition that does not actually reflect cognitive ability. The section on gifted girls and boys is especially troubling considering it places these students into predetermined bubbles.

  26. Luis – PHARR-SAN JUAN-ALAMO ISD (verified owner)

    I think this course is good so that we teacher can give these students the best service of education to fulfil their needs.
