3.2.4 A case study: A comparison of identification and assessment processes between second and fourth grade students enrolled in Turkish Science and Art Centers (SACs): From the experts’ perceptions

SACs are the unique formal institutions in Turkey which were founded by government since 2006 as an intervention challenge for the special needs of gifted students. There is a debate among Turkish professionals that indicates some concerns about whether the students’ identification and assessment should start from the first or fourth grades. Last year the National Ministry of Education decided that identification should start in the first grade instead of fourth grade. There is not any study showing the scientific necessaries about this issue to be able to solve the debate.
