As previously announced, the GDC has been invited to participate in a validation study of the fourth edition of the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI-IV) for the purpose of extending the norms of the scale to the furthest extent possible. We are seeking your assistance in locating children between the ages of 2.5 and 7.5 years who would be candidates for this study.
A child is a candidate for the study if he/she:
1.Has siblings who attended PG Retreat, are Davidson Young Scholars, or have tested 160 or above using quantitative or qualitative methods.
2.Was previously tested before March, 2011, on the WISC-IV or WPPSI-III and attained a score of 145 or above.
3.Was previously tested before September, 2011 on another standardized intelligence scale (Stanford-Binet, DAS, etc.) and attained a score of 145 or above. 4.New! Consistently exhibits characteristics of being highly, exceptionally, or profoundly gifted.
Children who are highly, exceptionally, or profoundly gifted develop differently than those who are mildly or moderately gifted. You may recognize these children by their:
•Extremely rapid progression through developmental milestones
•Advanced abstract reasoning abilities
•Noticeably sensitive and empathetic personalities
If you have reason to believe your child is in the upper three levels of giftedness, OR if she meets one of the first three criteria listed above, we invite you to download the following three screening forms:
Please FAX the forms with IQ test results (if your child has had previous testing) to Lauren at the GDC, 303-831-7465.
We have also revised our list of testing sites:
• Denver, CO
•Los Osos, CA
•Palo Alto, CA
•St. Louis, MO
•Gulf Breeze, FL
•Des Moines, IA •Wells, ME
(Houston has been reassigned to Dallas; Berwick, ME and Dover, NH have been reassigned to Wells, ME.)
Please continue to send children our way that you believe would qualify for this important study. We anticipate that the study will conclude by April 2nd, so please do not delay. Our previous research enabled Pearson Assessments to establish extended norms on the WISC-IV.
