Identification and Assessment
In Northwest ISD, students eligible for gifted services are screened in the area of general intellectual ability.
The identification process has three parts to it: referral, screening, and selection. The Texas State Plan for Gifted Education recommends that a balanced examination of assessment data be conducted and collected and used by the GT Campus Committee. The assessment criteria for NISD includes both quantitative and qualitative assessments. Quantitative measures include both aptitude and achievement tests; qualitative measures include parent, teacher, and student inventories.
