Course Description

This series of four (4) courses prepares teachers for certification to teach gifted students.

The four courses must be taken in sequence.

Identification and Assessment of the Gifted encompasses two facets of assessment: (1) assessment used in the identification, eligibility, and placement for services in gifted education programs and (2) classroom assessment of gifted learners that reflects appropriate levels of cognitive challenge while preparing these students to engage in self-assessment and goal-setting. Coursework will include the study of reasoning skills, principles of valid and reliable assessment, issues in the ethical use of assessment, and the design and evaluation of varied classroom assessments. Participants will research assessments used in the identification of gifted students as required by Georgia's eligibility rule, SBOE Rule 160-4-2-.38, and understand Georgia eligibility requirements as well as how their local district implements policies and procedures for the identification and placement of gifted students.
