Using Data to Shine a Light on Gifted Programs

Saturday, November 11
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM
Location: 217 BC

In this session, presenters show how one state department of education created a “gifted education data card” for each school district. The data card includes trend data on identification and evidence of program effectiveness from elementary through high school. Presenters share the data card and discuss the benefits it has for increasing awareness, showcasing successes, spotlighting issues, and gaining administrative support for program improvement. State directors, coordinators, and administrators benefit from learning how they may adapt the data card concept to “shine a light” on their own gifted programs.
