Summary

The great value of standardized tests for locating talent that would otherwise be likely to remain submerged and unidentified is emphasized. Such tests must be appropriate to the actual ability level of the persons tested, regardless of their grade level, so that sufficient ceilings may be obtained and power of minds probed adequately. High test scores are viewed as probably the best single initial clue to high potential, often more valid than school grades or teacher's recommendations. The goals of the five year study, which is in its second year, are: discovery, description and development. Development is understood as vigorous intervention in the educational process on behalf of highly talented students. (Author/BJG)
