The terms gifted or gifted and talented are bestowed students who display a variety of characteristics, including high performance capabilities in an intellectual, creative or artistic area. Although certain characteristics can be generalized some gifted students may not possess the same characteristics as other gifted individuals and they may not appear to have the same observable differences. Depending on how their giftedness previously has been dealt with, they even may appear quite “ungifted”. Many gifted students resist routine and exhibit nonconformist behavior. Others may withdraw, and passively be doing a minimum of what is required. These students may have developed an undesirable behavior due to lack of challenges in school being more or less arrested in their intellectual development. Therefore, it is important to identify these students as early as possible in order to secure a positive schooling experience. Based on theoretical work on giftedness and clinical experience (Clark, 2008; Silverman, 1984) a 56-item unipolar scale was developed. This scale was administrated to 149 gifted and talented students plus 253 parents and 122 teachers of gifted and talented students. On this unipolar scale the three groups of informants was asked to mark 0 (not true), 1, (somewhat or sometimes true) or 2 (very true or often true). Based on this information three checklists were devel-oped each with the 25 items that received the highest ranking. One for students, one for parents, and one for teachers. Hereby the checklists can contribute to a fast identification of gifted and talented students.
