N2 - In many schools there will be highly gifted students who need a challenge, but are unidentified by their teachers. Thus early identification and intervention is necessary for optimal development. However, many intelligence tests are time-consuming and costly. In this paper, a brief and easy-to-use screening instrument is presented. This checklist is a self-report, single page, paper-and-pencil questionnaire comprising 25 items, that can be completed quickly by the student. Each item is unipolar and asks the respondent about the match between a listed character trait and the student’s self-perception on a 3-point scale: 0 (not true), 1 (somewhat or sometimes true), and 2 (very true or often true). A comparative validity study was conducted on a group of 91 students with an IQ score between 130 and 160 (M=142) and group of 42 ‘ordinary´ students with an IQ between 84 and 116 (M=103). In advancing the practical application of the Giftedness checklist a set of cut-off intervals for identification of gifted students were identified using the total score on the gifted checklist. Using the intervals enables the teacher to determine the probability of giftedness based on raw scores. The checklist is available as an application.
