Abstract

The selection of instruments to screen and identify gifted and talented students is a difficult and problematic task faced by school divisions. The evaluation of instruments should include consideration of the reliability and the validity of instruments according to the specific purpose for which they are being used, the population on which they will be used, and the other characteristics considered vital for fair test use. This article presents a scale designed specifically for that purpose for use by school decision-makers.
