Topic: Jacob K. Javits Center for Gifted and Talented Education
Purpose: The National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented (NRCGT) conducts research on a host of issues surrounding gifted education, namely: Who are the gifted? What characterizes "giftedness" and how can the term's definition be used to identify students for gifted programs and services? What programs and services most benefit gifted students and can those programs and services yield positive results for students not identified as gifted, as well as for students identified as gifted under traditional or expanded definitions?
Established through a five-year, $8.7 million grant from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education, the Center is staffed by researchers with expertise in gifted education, and curriculum and instruction.Projects
