Abstract:
This study examined the performance of young gifted children on two measures. The sample included 25 children. The measures used were the DIAL-R and the WJ-R. Results obtained on the DIAL-R were used to confirm the development of the children. Scores on the DIAL-R were correlated with those on the WJ-R. Rankings of students by their teachers was also obtained as added information. Teacher preference of the two measures was used to determine which tests were more likely to be employed by the school in the future. Only 4 children were identified "potential advanced" on the language area and 3 of them with respect to the sum of the area scores on the DIAL-R. Most teachers preferred using the WJ-R over the DIAL-R with respect to the information it provided.
