NYC Gifted and Talented Program and Testing


G & T Test Changes

Changes to the G&T test methods used in many schools has lead to many more students qualifying for gifted and talented programs. Some believe these changes more accurately reflect the number of students who should be a part of these programs. Others believe the changes have lead to less valid or useful gifted and talented testing for children.

There has also been the argument that gifted and talented practice test or sample test options now so easily accessible by students have skewed results, leading to more students making it into gifted programs that might otherwise have been able to do so. The fact is that online gifted tests and similar practice or sample tests made available to students through private tutors and school sponsored programs do help more kids perform well on formal exams. They may help level the playing field for students in some areas, as well.
