Behavior Rating Scales as a Tool for More Equitable Identification of Gifted and Talented Children from Prufrock Press on Vimeo.

Using teacher and parent behavior rating scales offers one strategy to identify students who exhibit gifted abilities. These scales also help identify gifted students from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are labeled ELL, or who are twice-exceptional. How can you use behavior rating scales as part of your school/district's gifted identification system? Where do you even start? This webinar covers how scales—like the HOPE Teacher Rating Scale, SRBCSS, SIGS, and UTAGS—can be a valuable part of your identification procedures and in achieving equity in gifted programming.

Note. This video is supported by a white paper titled Identifying Students for Gifted and Advanced Academic Services Using Universal Screening and Local Norms.
