GT-Minority Identification (December 2003)

What are some methods we can use to identify giftedness in children from minority cultures?

For many years, educational professionals have been concerned about the disproportionate underrepresentation of children from some cultural, linguistic, and low income backgrounds in traditional gifted programs. These children, many of whom show potential for superior performance in areas that are not easily assessed by traditional ability measures, have not been provided with opportunities that elicit their gifts and talents and encourage them to maximize that potential.

The National Educational Longitudinal Study (NELS) of 1988 looked at 8th graders throughout the nation and found that 65 percent of the public schools (serving 75 percent of all public school 8th graders), had some kind of opportunity for gifted and talented students. The NELS study found that about 8.8 percent of all 8th-grade public school students participated in gifted and talented programs, and that some minority groups were more likely to be served than others. Economically disadvantaged students were significantly underserved, according to NELS data.

In January 2003, the National Academy of Sciences (http://www.nap.edu/catalog/10128.html) released a report on the seeming overrepresentation of minorities in special education and underrepresentation of those students in gifted education. The NRC reported that, nationwide, 7.47 percent of all white students and 9.9 percent of Asian students are placed in gifted programs. Meanwhile, 3.04 percent of African-American students, 3.57 percent of Hispanic students, and 4.86 percent of American Indian students are classified as gifted..

The number of students served in gifted and talented programs has grown substantially in the past decades, in part due to a focused effort by the states and funding by the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Program (http://www.ed.gov/prog_info/Javits/index.html). However, it is also clear that students from economically disadvantaged families and students with unorthodox talents are not being identified in equitable proportions.

This book discusses findings and recommendations of the Committee on Minority Representation in Special Education of the National Research Council. In chapter 1, the current study of the disproportion of minorities in special and gifted education is put into historical context. In chapter 2, an analysis of federal data on the representation of minority students in special and gifted programs during the past 3 decades is provided. Chapter 3 focuses on factors that contribute to variation in cognitive and behavioral function as they differ by race or ethnicity, and chapter 4 discusses early intervention programs to improve cognitive and behavioral outcomes of children at risk. Chapter 5 looks at general education and its role in the disproportionate placement of minority students in special and gifted education. Referral is examined in chapter 6, and the assessment process for disabilities and for gifted and talented programs is addressed in chapter 7. Chapter 8 examines major challenges to the existing system and offers recommendations for substantial reform. It concludes that more effective student referral and placement require more closely integrated assessment, intervention, and monitoring in general education. The last two chapters review literature on what works for special education and gifted students and summarizes recommendations.

This study examined the DISCOVER (Discovering Intellectual Strengths and Capabilities through Observation while allowing for Varied Ethnic Responses) assessment (C. Maker, A. Nielson, and J. Rogers, 1994) as a concurrent measure of the Raven Progressive Matrices (J. Raven, J. Court, and J. Raven, 1977). It also investigated gender differences in DISCOVER results. A secondary purpose was to determine the effectiveness of the DISCOVER assessment in reducing the problem of the underrepresentation of minority students in programs for the gifted. The sample consisted of 257 kindergarten, second, fourth, and fifth grade students, predominantly Navajo Indians and Mexican Americans. The results provide some evidence for concurrent validity and show that through use of the DISCOVER assessment 22.9%, of minority students were identified as gifted. A MANOVA, multivariate analysis of variance (gender by grade level), yielded no significant differences in the performance of males and females in all activities across grade levels. Chi- square tests revealed no overall significant gender differences between identification. The findings support the use of the DISCOVER assessment for identification purposes.

This paper discusses problems related to identification of gifted Hispanic children in rural areas. While the federal definition of giftedness is subscribed to by most states, local districts tend to seek and find White, middle-class academic achievers. One problem associated with identification of gifted minorities is that the research and literature on minorities has focused more on deficits than on strengths. Obstacles to identification include language differences, inappropriate use of I.Q. information, differences in home and cultural backgrounds, effects of poverty, limited out-of-school educational experiences, and racial or ethnic bias. In assessing student abilities, it is essential to understand that each instrument or procedure measures only one of many facets. Measures that go beyond academic achievement must be used to find students whose abilities are not indicated by tests and school performance. Three major types of educational adaptations for the gifted Hispanic student are suggested: counseling to help students caught between conflicting cultures, the building of self-knowledge, and the development of meaningful curriculum adaptations. Six suggestions are listed to help parents, counselors, and teachers work successfully with culturally diverse gifted learners. Contains 26 references.

This report on the educational needs of American gifted and talented students identifies indicators of an educational crisis, describes the current status of education for these students, and presents recommendations to meet the educational needs of these students. Indicators demonstrating the need for change include the relatively poor performance by American students on international tests and the small number of students performing at the highest levels on National Assessment of Educational Progress tests. Recent studies have shown that gifted and talented elementary school students have mastered 35-40% of the curriculum in five basic subjects before they begin the school year; most regular classroom teachers make few, if any, provisions for talented students; highest achieving students study less than an hour a day; and only 2 cents out of every $100 spent on K-12 education supports special opportunities for talented students. A review describes how gifted and talented students are currently identified, the number of students served, the kind of support available, the kind of education most gifted and talented students receive, and characteristics of effective programs for these students. Seven recommendations are offered: (1) set challenging curricular standards; (2) establish high-level learning opportunities; (3) ensure access to early childhood education; (4) increase learning opportunities for disadvantaged and minority children with outstanding talents; (5) broaden the definition of gifted (a broadened definition based on the federal Javits Gifted and Talented Education Act is offered); (6) encourage appropriate teacher training and technical assistance; and (7) match world performance.

To reduce the possibility that children who do not fit stereotypical profiles of gifted children will be passed over, identifying students from diverse backgrounds for talent should be a multipronged effort. Outreach is especially important in areas when parents may be absorbed in meeting their family's immediate needs. To facilitate identification at school, teacher training programs now provide education about cultural and talent diversity among gifted students and about the ways learning style differences can mask evidence of special talents. The children themselves, and the adults in their lives, may not even be aware of their talents, but schools can use the following methods of identifying giftedness to make sure that students receive fair consideration: (1) standardized tests; (2) observation; (3) self-identification through biographical inventories; and (4) portfolios. Identifying the special talents of students from diverse backgrounds is just the first step toward helping them achieve their full potential.

This Digest discusses the ongoing effort to develop new methods for identifying talent and giftedness among bilingual and limited-English-proficient Hispanic students. To provide better profiles for the identification of all gifted children, research suggests use of both qualitative and quantitative instruments. Several instruments are recommended for assessing disadvantaged children, including culturally and linguistically diverse students, and for use with Spanish-speaking students. Most school districts serving gifted and talented bilingual Hispanic students use multiple criteria in the screening and identification process. Multiple criteria may include ethnographic or dynamic assessment, portfolios, test scores, teacher observation, behavioral checklists, writing samples, and input from parents and community members. Certain student traits may alert teachers to consider further assessment. Although Hispanic females have shown a consistent trend of doing better academically than males, they remain seriously underrepresented in higher education. To increase participation of Hispanic female students in programs for the gifted and talented, both parents and educators must be advocates. As more culturally and linguistically diverse students enter the nation's schools, local programs must be in place to identify and educate the gifted and talented among them and must allow their participation while they are learning English.

The Raven's Progressive Matrices (RPM) and the Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM) were evaluated as possible instruments for identifying academically talented students in minority populations. A significantly higher proportion of minority children scored well on the RPM than on a traditional measure. Issues and concerns about using the APM as the sole identification measure are raised.

This monograph presents a paradigm for identifying giftedness among all groups of young people. Section 1 presents a review and critique of traditional identification approaches and highlights the limitations that tests may have for identifying talent potential among groups currently underrepresented in gifted programs. Section 2 examines the values and environmental influences of several cultures, to identify the additional challenges faced by high achieving, ethnically diverse students. Within-group cultural differences are also considered. The third section reports the results of an exploratory study which examined the characteristics of economically disadvantaged and limited English proficient gifted students. Section 4 looks at behaviors that characterize gifted performance, noting research results which suggest that there may be well-known "absolute" behaviors which characterize high performance cross-culturally, as well as specific behaviors which manifest themselves in particular cultural contexts. Emerging insights from the Javits Gifted and Talented Students' Education Act are addressed in the fifth section. The final section provides a synthesis of the previously presented ideas and proposes a five-element paradigm of giftedness, including: (1) new constructs of giftedness; (2) absolute and specific behaviors; (3) cultural and contextual variables; (4) authentic assessment; and (5) identification through learning opportunities. Executive Summary is also published separately.

Target Audience: Policymakers
An analysis was conducted of state policies concerning the identification of gifted students, especially those traditionally underserved (the culturally diverse, economically disadvantaged, and students with disabilities). Content analysis of each state's documents focused on six major areas: (1) legislation, (2) definitions of "gifted," (3) standard identification practices, (4) nonstandard identification practices, (5) due process and grievance procedures, and (6) specific references to gifted students from special populations. The analysis revealed that a range of attention is being given to these special populations and that state policies tend to be permissive and inclusive regarding identification and services. Some states have developed communication, recruitment, and child-find strategies to increase public awareness. Forty-three states have screening policies to locate gifted students. Formal identification strategies often rely on the use of multiple criteria. In their identification processes, 46 states incorporate outside-of- school activities; 43 include measures of creativity; and many states permit input from teachers, parents, students, and others. Forty states specifically mention culturally diverse gifted students, and 40 mention economically disadvantaged children. Students with learning disabilities are addressed by 40 states, and students with sensory and physical disabilities are mentioned by 36 states. Appended are the content analysis matrix and guidelines.
