    • Abstract: Lavin, Angela
      The case of a gifted and talented Catholic Dominican nun is described and analysed in the context of Renzulli's Three-Ring Conception of Giftedness and Gagn 's Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent. Using qualitative methods, semi-structured interviews of relevant individuals were conducted and analysed. Based on the conclusions of this analysis, which demonstrate the importance of environmental and intrapersonal catalysts, some general observations have been drawn that may support specific adaptations to the educational process for gifted and talented individuals.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Predicting academic achievement growth among
           
    • Abstract: Matthews, Michael S; Farmer, Jennie
      Dynamic assessment methods, initially developed by Feuerstein in the 1970s, have been recommended as being more equitable for identifying the academic abilities of students who may not perform well on traditional assessments due to these learners' cultural, linguistic, or economic differences from the population for whom the traditional measures were developed. In this exploratory study we examined seven years' follow-up performance on a state proficiency test to determine the extent to which dynamic and static measures administered in second grade predicted academic growth among a low-income population of students of Mexican American heritage. Based on a series of multilevel models, we concluded that neither the dynamic nor static test performance was a statistically significant predictor of individual differences in growth, though confidence intervals are suggestive that a larger sample with more power might identify such a relationship. We discuss findings in the context of identification for gifted education programming.

      Karen B. Rogers has dedicated her career to serving gifted students. In this interview she outlines her major research studies, and explores some of her experiences in the field, with special emphasis on her time in Australia. She discusses her use of the meta-synthesis and meta-analysis methodologies, and outlines key areas of gifted education that she views are in need of further research. She also explores a little of her story, explaining her own schooling experience, her early career, her mentors, and her key words of advice for new teachers of gifted students.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Re-introduction of cognitive screening for all school
           children
    • Abstract: Wellisch, Mimi
      This article argues for the reintroduction of cognitive assessment for all New South Wales (NSW) school children to ensure the early identification of those who are intellectually gifted. The article is based on a review of the literature, and includes discussion on the development of cognitive assessments, and historical and current practices in the administration of cognitive assessments in NSW. The benefits of introducing teacher administered group screening tests to all children starting school are outlined. In particular, such a strategy may (a) lead to better targeted educational provisions, (b) provide a baseline for comparison with the later learning gains of children, (c) allow for the observation of early signs of underachievement, and (d) allow for the identification of emerging signs of learning difficulties. Children with both high and low screening scores are recommended for referral to psychologists for a full cognitive test and other assessments.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Parents' experiences with their children's grade-based
           acceleration: Struggles, successes, and subsequent needs
    • Abstract: Dare, Lynn; Smith, Susen; Nowicki, Elizabeth
      Grade-based acceleration is when high-ability children progress through school at a rate faster than typical by being placed with older classmates. This educational practice can help meet the learning needs of high-ability children. In this study, 56 parents of high-ability children who underwent grade-based acceleration in Australian schools shared their experiences through an online questionnaire. We posed the following research question: "What are the experiences of parents whose children accelerate into classes with older classmates?" Our findings revealed that parents perceived successful academic, social, and emotional outcomes of acceleration for their children. However, parents encountered some resistance towards acceleration among teachers, which may have interfered with the availability of accelerative options. For some parents, illinformed attitudes among other adults placed a strain on parents' social relationships. Parents also described their accelerated children's educational needs, which were not universally met within their respective schools. Practical implications for parents and teachers considering acceleration are discussed.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Perceptions of differentiating pedagogy for gifted
           readers, typically developing readers, and students with reading
           difficulties in multi-grade primary classrooms
    • Abstract: Smith, Susen; Arthur-Kelly, Michael
      Multi-grade primary classroom contexts provide opportunities to address the different needs of diverse learners through differentiating instruction. This mixed-methods study is a smaller component of a larger study undertaken in Australia, with other elements reported elsewhere. The study used ecobehavioural assessment to examine the relationships between observed classroom environments, teacher instruction, and behavioural responses of gifted readers, typically developing readers, and students with reading difficulties during literacy lessons in New South Wales (NSW) regional schools. Semi-structured interviews provided observed teachers' perceptions of their classroom instruction. The observation results indicated some key relationships between teacher instruction, student learning responses, and classroom learning contexts or ecologies. While the interviews identified some teacher perceived differentiated instruction for students with different reading needs, both methodological approaches produced evidence of some use of research-based differentiated practices for students with different learning needs.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - "I need to do better, but I don't know what to do":
           Primary teachers' experiences of talented young writers
    • Abstract: Easton, Vernitta; Gaffney, Janet S; Wardman, Janna
      The study investigated New Zealand primary school teachers' understandings and experiences of talented young writers. Data were gathered using semi-structured interviews in Auckland schools. The interview data were thematically analysed using an interpretivist framework. The focus of this report is on the teachers' selection and interpretation of writing samples. Findings from this study indicated that the teachers did not use the school's policy guidelines on gifted and talented students. Teachers offered similar meanings of giftedness and talent, utilized a narrow range of behaviours in the identification process, and relied upon assessment data and teaching experience in decision making. Minimal in-class provisions were available to lift their achievement. Teachers identified many challenging aspects in teaching talented writers. This study reinforces the need for, and importance of, continuing professional development regarding the teaching of talented young writers in primary schools.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - "Allowing them to flourish": Parents support the
           leadership, academic and administrative challenges of full-year
           acceleration of their children at high school
    • Abstract: Wardman, Janna
      Although there is a plethora of research evidence in support of the benefits of acceleration, the voices of parents are seldom heard in the literature around outcomes from full-year acceleration. This retrospective study reports on the views of the parents (N=16) of a group of New Zealand students (N=12) who were accelerated a full year in their first year of high school. The students completed five years secondary schooling in four years, before all proceeding to university, with the majority being 16 years old at time of entry instead of 17 or 18. As the data are substantial, the results are reported in two articles: the first reported on social and emotional challenges faced by the students. This current article reports on the parents' perceptions of the leadership, academic and administrative challenges of full-year acceleration. Most of the accelerands were moderately, not profoundly gifted and all resided in a lower socio-economic area. The parents reflect on the strategy of full-year acceleration and how it affected the opportunities available to their children. This positive account reinforces the international literature on the long-term benefits of full-year acceleration.

  • Volume 25 Issue 1 - To sir, with love: Messages for educators from gifted
           financially disadvantaged young people
    • Abstract: Ballam, Nadine
      Over the last decade, the New Zealand Ministry of Education (2000, 2012) has continued to identify young people from low socioeconomic backgrounds as one of six groups who are consistently underrepresented in gifted and talented programmes in New Zealand schools. This paper reports on a research project that explored the lived experiences of 101 gifted young people from low socioeconomic backgrounds. These young people were invited to reflect on questions related to recognition and perceptions of their abilities, school and classroom provisions, and aspects of their schooling that limited or enabled the development of their talents. Three key messages that are relevant to educators emerged from their responses. These messages highlighted the importance of relationships, the pressure to perform and the main source of their drive to achieve. This paper provides a starting point for considering how gifted, financially disadvantaged students might be effectively supported to develop their potential.

  • Volume 25 Issue 1 - Gagne's DMGT and underachievers: The need for an
           alternative inclusive gifted model
    • Abstract: Wellisch, Mimi
      Most Australian education departments' gifted policies are guided by Gagne's Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent (DMGT; Gagne, 2003, 2004; 2008). In this examination and critique of the DMGT, an argument is made that the DMGT is based predominantly on behavioural/biological research, leaving out genuine environmental factors, and that its application relates specifically to gifted achievers. This renders gifted underachievers, including those who may have environmentally acquired socio-emotional problems (e.g., due to poor attachment and maternal depression), without a legitimate claim for identification or without an appropriate educational pathway. An expanded conception of underachievement is proposed, and a revised Model of Inclusive Gifted Identification and Progression (Wellisch and Brown, 2012) is reviewed and recommended as a replacement.

  • Volume 25 Issue 1 - How do academically successful Pasifika students
           perceive task value?
    • Abstract: Tait, Kirstin; Horsley, Jenny; Tait, Carolyn
      Pasifika students are a minority group in New Zealand education who are at risk of underachievement. This article examines how five high achieving Pasifika students reported the factors that contribute to the task value of the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) Scholarship. It uses expectancy value theory to consider motivation through subjective attainment, utility, and interest values. In-depth data were gathered from five high achieving Pasifika students who attained at least one NZQA Scholarship between 2005 and 2012. It was found that during the year these students sat the NZQA Scholarship examinations, their sources of value changed as they perceived different costs and opportunities associated with the NZQA Scholarship. Limitations, implications, and future directions for supporting high achieving Pasifika students are also discussed.

  • Volume 25 Issue 1 - Inside a gifted class: Classroom discourse patterns,
           teacher and student questions, and teacher revoicing
    • Abstract: Ogurlu, Uzeyir
      This study examined how classroom discourse evolved in a gifted class and compared it with a non-gifted class at the same year level. The following features of classroom discourse were examined: Initiation - Response - Follow up (IRF) patterns, teacher and student questions, and teacher revoicing. To conduct the study, audiorecordings of classroom interactions in the subject of mathematics were collected over a six week period from a private elementary school that housed both gifted (n=20) and non-gifted (n=20) classes in Turkey. The findings indicated that both the gifted and the non-gifted classes were dominated by IRF interaction patterns. Nevertheless, extended IRF and student-initiated IRF sequences were more prevalent in the gifted classroom. Moreover, a greater number of authentic teacher questions were noted in the gifted classroom, and gifted students asked more on-topic questions. In terms of teacher revoicing, both incorporation and restatements were more common in the non-gifted classroom.

  • Volume 25 Issue 1 - Preparation for teaching gifted students: An updated
           investigation into university offerings in New South Wales
    • Abstract: Fraser-Seeto, Kylie; Howard, Steven J; Woodcock, Stuart
      Gifted and talented students are a diverse and often overlooked group of students. Research suggests that this may be at least partly related to limited gifted and talented education training at the preservice level. In fact, within an Australian context, preservice training in gifted and talented education in Australia has consistently been found to be insufficient. Given that the last study of Australian preservice gifted and talented education offerings was conducted in 2005, however, the current study sought to investigate whether these provisions had substantially changed in the eight years since that study. Further, this study sought to provide a more detailed view of offerings (e.g., undergraduate vs. post-graduate, elective vs. compulsory, credit point values) by universities. Results revealed marginal increases in subject offerings at the undergraduate level, which continue to fall short of Senate recommendations, and a shift toward longer-term training at the post-graduate level. The implications of these trends for teacher preparedness are discussed.
