Administration: IndividualThe Gifted and Talented Evaluation Scale (GATES-2) offers an innovative, quick approach for identifying gifted students ages 5–18. Based on the most current federal and state definitions, the GATES-2 satisfies the critical national need for a norm-referenced instrument that assesses the characteristics, skills, and talents of gifted students.

Designed for use in schools, the GATES-2 comprises 50 items that describe characteristic behaviors of persons who are gifted and talented. It is easily completed by teachers, parents, and others who are knowledgeable about the students being considered for a gifted and talented program.

The GATES-2 is a psychometrically sound, standardized rating scale that measures the characteristics of gifted and talented students seen in school settings. With the development of the GATES-2, schools and school districts have a viable method for screening large groups of students for gifted and talented programs. The GATES-2 was normed in 2014 on a representative national sample of more than 1,000 persons who were identified as gifted and talented. Studies of internal consistence and test-retest reliability produced high (.90+) coefficients. Additional studies confirmed the test's content, construct, criterion-related, and concurrent validity. Extensive evidence of the statistical properties of the test is reported in the test manual.

The GATES-2 Complete Kit Includes:

  • Examiner's Manual
  • Gifted and Talented Evaluation Scare Summary and Response Forms
  • All materials are included in a sturdy storage box.
