This list has been compiled in an effort to assist teachers in identifying gifted learners. It lists many characteristics of gifted learners. No one student will have all of these. If a student has many of them, however, he/she is a good candidate to recommend for gifted testing.
Important Note: This information is NOT my own. I have taken this information from the following sources: Differentiation for Gifted Learners: Going Beyond the Basics by Diane Heacox and Richard M. Cash; Teaching Gifted Kids in Today’s Classroom by Susan Winebrenner and Dina Brulles; and How to Identify Gifted Students in Your Classroom on Advancement Courses (https://www.advancementcourses.com/blog/how-to-identify-gifted).
