The newly revised Identifying Gifted Students: A Practical Guide is aligned with both the updated National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) Pre-K–12 Gifted Program Standards and the NAGC and The Association for the Gifted, Council for Exceptional Children (CEC-TAG) professional development standards. This book is relevant in any state or setting that intends to meet these national standards and uses multiple assessments to identify gifted students within an increasingly diverse population.

Designed for practicing professionals such as teachers, counselors, psychologists, and administrators, Identifying Gifted Students addresses definitions, models, and characteristics of gifted students; qualitative and quantitative approaches to assessment; culturally fair and nonbiased assessment; and how to evaluate the effectiveness of identification procedures. In addition, the book provides a complete summary of all major assessment instruments, including scoring information, reliability, and validity.

Review by: Sandee Manning, California Association for the Gifted - May 1, 2005
As editor, Susan Johnsen offers a book that is both practical and informative. Designed for professionals working with the gifted and talented, her book seeks to meet the informational needs of teachers of the gifted, school administrators, psychologists, and psychometrists. Readers will find chapters that cover the gamut of gifted education basics and extend beyond to offer guidance to decision-makers seeking to identify these children for services. The books lives up to its title in that educators can turn to it as an authoritative reference in matters of assessing students and count on receiving practical and easy to implement solutions for their assessment needs.
