9 Peer perceptions of talented students in Korea

The purpose of this study is to investigate the peer perceptions of talented students. We asked students to describe their thoughts about the talented students. We distinguished talented students into academically high-achieving, gifted, and creative students. A total of 319 middle school students participated in this study. Factor analysis showed that there were seven peer perceived characteristics of academically high achieving, six characteristics of gifted, and six characteristics of creative students. The results showed that Korean students distinguished academically high achieving, gifted, and creative students differently. Overall, peers perceived talented students positively.
