Abstract

A brief narrative description of the journal article, document, or resource. A survey of 39 school districts serving large numbers of culturally diverse students found that many districts listed gifted students from ethnic/linguistic minorities or economically disadvantaged as important underserved populations. Alternative identification procedures were primarily intended to expand the assessment basis, and factors associated with success included quality school personnel and the assessment practices themselves.
