Abstract

The objectives of this study were to identify the needs of 98 intellectually gifted students, grades 9-12; to assess those needs; and based on the assessment, to recommend action to fulfill those needs. An opinion survey, based on the North Central Association's "Secondary Student Questionnaire," was administered.

Approximately a third of the students responded that the faculty set only mediocre standards and held only average expectations for student performance.

The results of this study implied a need for the faculty to evaluate the curriculum considering the needs of gifted students and to consider changes in teaching methods based on current research to meet those needs.
