GATES: Gifted and Talented Evaluation Scales
Ages: 5 through 18
Testing Time: 5 to 10 minutes
The GATES is an innovative, quick approach for identifying students ages 5 to 18 who are gifted and talented. Based on the most current federal and state definitions, the GATES satisfies the critical national need for a norm-referenced instrument that assesses the characteristics, skills, and talents of gifted students. The GATES was normed in 1995 on a representative national sample of over 1,000 persons who were identified as gifted and talented. Characteristics of the normative group approximate those for the 1990 census data relative to gender, geographic location, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
Complete GATES Kit includes: Examiner’s Manual and 50 Summary/Response Forms, all in a sturdy storage box. (1996)
