On-line Monographs Students' Perceptions of the Social/Emotional Implications of Participation in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Programs
Foust, R. C., Hertberg-Davis, H., & Callahan, C. M.

This study explored student perceptions of the social and emotional advantages and disadvantages of Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) program participation, differences between the AP and IB programs in those perceptions, and whether or not students report experiencing a "forced-choice dilemma" between academic success and social acceptance. Students reported the benefits attributed to participation in AP and IB courses were a better class atmosphere, a special bond among participants, and pride and self-confidence derived from completing the more challenging work, but lamented the perception of unflattering stereotypes assigned to AP and IB students, the socially limiting workload, and the stress and fatigue. IB students were more likely than AP students to complain about the rigidity of their program, cite differences between themselves and non-participants, perceive a negative stereotype associated with the program, and report experiencing great exhaustion due to the workload. AP and IB students did not consider academic success a choice and felt that they could maintain both a social life and their academic success.

Too few identified gifted and potentially gifted students are exposed to concepts and competencies that will unclog the mathematics pipeline through access to algebraic understanding. Unclogging the Mathematics Pipeline Through Access to Algebraic Understanding involved grade 6 students in Algebra lessons for 30 hours of after-school instruction or summer instruction. This pilot research study attempted to determine whether varying the form in which mathematical material is presented and adding an after-school or summer component creates greater equity of opportunity for students to improve their mathematical performance and to increase their self-efficacy and positive attitudes toward and interest in mathematics.

On-line Monographs Development of Differentiated Performance Assessment Tasks for Middle School Classrooms
Moon, T. R., Callahan, C. M., Brighton, C. M., & Tomlinson, C. A.

In the past two decades, educational reform efforts have all emphasized accountability in terms of student achievement and learning outcomes rather than process. As a result, high-stakes testing has become the focal point for evaluating student learning. New differentiated authentic assessments for classroom use that embody key concepts, principles, generalizations, and processes are presented in response to these concerns.

On-line Monographs The Schoolwide Enrichment Model Reading Study
Reis, S. M., Eckert, R. D., Schreiber, F. J., Jacobs, J., Briggs, C., Gubbins, E. J., Coyne, M., & Muller, L. M.

This monograph presents the results of an investigation on the effects of an enriched reading program on elementary students' reading fluency, comprehension, and attitude toward reading. The Schoolwide Enrichment Reading Model (SEM-R) provides enriched reading experiences by exposing students to exciting, high interest books, encouraging them to increase daily independent reading of appropriately challenging, self-selected books through individualized reading instruction, and providing interest-based choice opportunities in reading. This research was conducted in urban and suburban schools with a diverse student population of children from low socioeconomic income families and students with special needs. Results indicate that students in the SEM-R treatment group scored significantly higher than those in the control group in reading comprehension, reading fluency, and attitude toward reading.

The goal of this study was to investigate the use of dynamic assessment to increase equity, fairness, and accuracy in the testing of abilities and achievement. Dynamic tests have been found to reveal developing expertise in underrepresented minorities that is not revealed by conventional static tests. The data collected show that it is possible to develop dynamic assessments that can be used to asses students in a regular classroom setting, such dynamic assessments tends to lead to higher student achievement, and dynamic instruction tends to reduce the achievement gap between minority and non-minority students.

The purpose of this study was to assess factors that lead to success in transitions of giftedness. The study tested the hypotheses that creative and practical abilities will become increasingly important with age and that underrepresented minority groups will score relatively higher on measures of creative and practical abilities than on measures of analytical abilities. The data analyses concluded that preschool children who are identified as gifted do perform better on a number of cognitive and achievement tasks. The difference is clearer during middle and high school, when creative and practical abilities become more important relative to analytical skills, especially for underrepresented minority students.

On-line Monographs Issues and Practices in the Identification and Education of Gifted Students From Under-represented Groups
Borland, J. H.

Under-representation of minority students, students with limited English proficiency, and economically disadvantaged students has been a long-standing problem in gifted education. This monograph discusses the possible causes of the problem, both within and outside the field of gifted education. It also offers possible solutions, including revising the identification process, extending gifted education to all students, and/or completely reworking the current system to eliminate gifted programs that are separate from the general education classroom.

On-line Monographs Primary Grade Teachers' Conceptions of Giftedness and Talent: A Case-based Investigation
Brighton, C. M., Moon, T. R., Jarvis, J. M., & Hockett, J. A.

Poor and minority students under-representation in gifted programs is contributed to failure of identifying and developing their talents at a young age. This report is the outcome of a two-phase, mixed-methods study designed to explore the beliefs and practices of teachers at the primary school level (grades K-2). The study focused on teachers' beliefs about the nature of giftedness in young students, teachers' beliefs about how giftedness is manifested and distributed across cultural and socioeconomic groups of young students, and teachers' classroom practices related to talent development in the primary grades. Findings showed that talent development for typically underserved children in primary grade classrooms are affected by factors internal to the teacher, forces on the teacher outside the self, teacher behaviors, and observable student behaviors and verbal responses.

On-line Monographs Identifying Academically Talented Minority Students
Lohman, D. F.

The cultural and socioeconomic diversity of the U.S. school population is now and long has been underrepresented in programs for academically advanced students. Although educators have offered several proposals for increasing the diversity of programs for the gifted and talented, none directly addresses the central problem in identifying academic talent. The problem is to find a way to identify and assist these children without compromising the ability of programs to serve children who already display high levels of academic and cognitive development. The goals of this monograph are (a) to explain why an aptitude approach to talent identification accomplishes these goals and (b) to illustrate how schools can implement this approach.

On-line Monographs The DISCOVER Project: Improving Assessment and Curriculum for Diverse Gifted Learners
Maker, C. J.

The author has developed a unique performance-based assessment in which children are observed by teams of teachers, counselors, paraprofessionals, administrators, specialists in education of the gifted and bilingual education, and local community members. This assessment is a culmination of many years of research and development through the Discovering Intellectual Strengths and Capabilities (DISCOVER) Projects. In this study, the author describes her own thinking and research process as the framework evolved and was tested. Then, a descriptive account of the assessment, along with many ways the curriculum principles of DISCOVER can be implemented in general classrooms or classrooms for gifted students are presented. Practical applications of the assessment are presented with real examples of six case studies of schools, school districts, a state, and two other countries using the models.

On-line Monographs Underachieving Gifted Students: A Social Cognitive Model
Clemons, T. L.

This study examined the relationships among students' self-perception, attitudes toward school, study and organizational skills, achievement motivation, attributional style, gender, parental involvement and style, parental income and parental level of education, and students' academic performance or achievement. Using previous research in motivation and gifted achievement a model was developed to represent the relationships among the student and parent variables and achievement.Students' socioeconomic status was found to have the strongest relationship with academic achievement followed by achievement motivation, study and organizational skills, and parental involvement and responsiveness. Results suggest that achievement motivation does not serve as a mediator between parental involvement and style and achievement, or between socioeconomic status and achievement.

Reis, S. M., Schader, R., Milne, H. J., Bloomer, R., Shute, L., Williams, G., Tieso, C., Stephens, R., & Don, A.

This monograph describes the Music & Minds program. The purpose of the research was to investigate the implications and impact of a strengths- and interests-based program on a special needs group of young adults with Williams syndrome. This exploratory study employed multiple methodologies. Comparative case study and descriptive analysis were used to examine the experiences of the participants, and a mixed methods approach provided input into the effectiveness of using music (a self-reported area of interest) to achieve gains in a demonstrated deficit area (fractions). Findings from the 10-day residential program showed that when academic learning was incorporated into an enriched music-infused curriculum, achievement increased and enthusiasm for learning was enhanced.
