Free Forums in Indiana for Educators and Parents of Academically Gifted Students

Share Article

The first step in charting an effective academic program for gifted students is to assess their ability accurately. Join Tammie Stewart, Manager of Community Outreach at the Center for Talent Development at Northwestern University, for an informative session to discuss the benefits of above-grade-level testing as a critical assessment and planning tool for gifted students.

Above-grade-level testing provides valid assessment and targeted resources

Tammie Stewart, Manager of Community Outreach at the Center for Talent Development at Northwestern University, will be in Indiana January 22 through 24 meeting with parents and educators about addressing the needs of gifted students.

High achievers hit the ceiling on standardized, grade-level tests. They require a more advanced test, one designed for a higher grade level, to gain a true measure of where they are performing and what they need moving forward. Knowing what a child is capable of doing means teachers can differentiate and tailor instruction to meet the student's needs. Learn more at upcoming educational forums for parents and educators.
