HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD IS GIFTED?
A Gifted child can be identified in many ways, some even through the regular standardized tests which are currently being administered at their school site. In order for a child to be considered gifted, they must score in the gifted or advanced percentile range on the standardized test. These categories are per the directions of the test publishers, not QUEST.
WHERE CAN I GET MY CHILD’S STANDARDIZED TEST?
Most schools administer an annual standardized test each school year. Schools then provide parents with a report of their child’s performance often sent home in the mail. See your present school site annual standardized assessments. (e.g., Iowa Test, Woodcock Johnson IV Test of Achievement, Neglieri Nonverbal Ability Test [NNAT], Otis Lennon School Ability Test [OLSAT8], etc.).
If you have misplaced this information, no worries, all schools are required to keep this information on file (we require a recent report taken within 12 months prior to the submission date.)
Fees for standardized test reports vary from school to school.
