2.4.2 Holistic assessment and technology: Reaping the benefits

The holistic development, judgment and assessment partnership is vital in terms of its influence on the socioemotional and educational welfare of gifted individuals - personally and institutionally. Understanding and knowledge grows. Better quality environments are provided. Specific needs are more mindfully accommodated. Acquiring and managing necessarily rich data can be stressful. However, a variety of technological tools are available which save time while adding value and credibility to assessments. They can simplify data collection, management and exploration; facilitate critical thinking, problem finding and solving; clarify issues; enhance interventions: monitor response to interventions; and improve the efficacy and outcome of communication.
