At the recent Mid-South Regional Conference for Psychology in the Schools, Allison Pannell, presented on a study that examined the use of the Universal Talented and Gifted Screener to gauge success of school-age children relative to local and national norms.
The data from the study supported the efficacy of screening and identifying students who may be at-risk for educational failure and assessed areas that are important for school success, such as emotional intelligence. Local and national norms were available for comparative purposes; the instrument specifically includes scales on cognition, creativity, leadership, literacy, math and science.
Other results and implications are outlined in the linked poster. For other information about the study please contact either Allison Pannell (firstname.lastname@example.org) or her faculty advisor, Dr. Steve Mccallum (email@example.com).
