MEETING THE NEEDS OF GIFTED STUDENTS

NUMATS offers valid assessment and targeted, customized online resources. Together with supplemental academic programming, NUMATS provides a well-researched model for gifted children to reach full potential.
The first step in charting an effective academic program for gifted students is to assess their ability accurately. Above-grade-level testing through NUMATS is the best means available. 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.
But the test score is just the first step. The second step is to access a myriad of instructional and planning resources to develop an engaging program that facilitates academic growth. In doing so, educators and parents alike can work to ensure that gifted students follow a path that leads from high potential to exceptional achievement.
Join Rhoda Rosen for an informative session to discuss the benefits of above-grade level testing as a critical assessment and planning tool for gifted students in grades 3 through 9.
