4.8.4 Cross cultural instrumentation for gifted education research and programming: Purdue’s repository

In this session, we showcase a recent website available through our center that contains a collection of instruments that researchers can download and use in their own research and that practitioners can use in their identification, programming, and evaluation efforts. A brief overview of these instruments, their psychometric properties, and the populations and cultures with which they have been studied will be presented together with complete references of development of and research with these instruments and a demonstration of the website where they are available. We will share TOF, MCA, SPOCQ, HOPE Scale (not downloadable), CPS—Revised, among others.
