    The statement "Gifted serves as a label for a high level of intelligence" is not a correct statement because being gifted is not solely based on intelligence. Giftedness is a complex concept that involves advanced and accelerated development of various functions within the brain, including intellectual, creative, and socio-emotional abilities. It is not limited to intelligence alone and encompasses a broader range of characteristics and potential.

    For effective learning concerete experiences, sensory stimulation, and active involvement are needed at both elementary and secondary levels.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that for effective learning, concrete experiences, sensory stimulation, and active involvement are needed at both elementary and secondary levels. However, this is not necessarily true. While these elements can enhance learning, they are not the only factors that contribute to effective learning. Other factors such as effective teaching strategies, a conducive learning environment, and student motivation also play a significant role in promoting effective learning at both elementary and secondary levels. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Optimal development requires the active involvement of the learner.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Optimal development refers to the most effective and efficient way of developing skills and abilities. In order to achieve this, the learner needs to be actively involved in the learning process. When learners actively engage in their own learning, they are more likely to understand and retain information, make connections, and apply what they have learned in real-life situations. This active involvement can include activities such as participating in discussions, asking questions, problem-solving, and hands-on experiences. Therefore, the statement "Optimal development requires the active involvement of the learner" is true.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Highly gifted children have a faster pace of thinking and higher intensity and focus, which enables them to maintain their abilities and emotional well-being more easily. This means that they require less effort compared to less gifted children. Therefore, the statement is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Intelligence is indeed a rational, cognitive process that involves the ability to reason, understand, learn, and problem-solve. Intelligence tests are designed to measure these cognitive abilities and provide a quantitative measure of an individual's intelligence. Therefore, it is true that an individual's intelligence can be measured by an intelligence test.

  • 8. 

    Fear, threat, anxiety, or tension makes it very difficult to learn.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Fear, threat, anxiety, or tension can actually enhance learning in certain situations. These emotions can trigger the release of stress hormones, which can increase focus and attention. Additionally, they can motivate individuals to seek out information and resources to alleviate the negative emotions. While excessive fear or anxiety can be detrimental to learning, a moderate level of these emotions can actually facilitate the learning process. Therefore, the statement that fear, threat, anxiety, or tension makes it very difficult to learn is false.

    Gifted children are born gifted and intelligence level changes very little throughout their lives.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Intelligence level is not fixed and can change throughout a person's life. While some children may show exceptional abilities from a young age, intelligence can be developed and nurtured through various factors such as education, experiences, and exposure to different stimuli. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that gifted children are born gifted and their intelligence level remains unchanged throughout their lives.

    Interaction with the environment begins to affect the infant's intellectual development significantly during the prenatal period.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the prenatal period, the fetus is already exposed to various stimuli from the environment, such as sounds and movements. These interactions can have a significant impact on the development of the infant's brain and cognitive abilities. Research has shown that prenatal experiences can influence the infant's attention, memory, and language skills later in life. Therefore, it is true that the interaction with the environment begins to affect the infant's intellectual development significantly during the prenatal period.

    Generally, infants and young children require a rich and varied environment that responds to their abilities, needs, and interests for giftedness to develop.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Infants and young children need a diverse and stimulating environment in order to foster their development and potential. This includes providing activities and experiences that cater to their abilities, needs, and interests. By creating such an environment, it is more likely that giftedness can be nurtured and flourish in these early stages of life.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Age is a good index of mental and physical maturation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Age is not necessarily a good index of mental and physical maturation. While it is true that people generally experience physical and cognitive development as they age, there are many factors that can influence an individual's level of maturation. Some individuals may mature earlier or later than others, and factors such as genetics, environment, and lifestyle can also play a significant role in determining a person's level of mental and physical maturity. Therefore, age alone cannot be considered a reliable indicator of maturation.

    During adolescence gifted students should be given a less challenging curriculum to allow them time to organize their knowledge base and synthesize their previous learning.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    During adolescence, gifted students should not be given a less challenging curriculum. This is because they have advanced cognitive abilities and need to be intellectually stimulated. Providing them with a less challenging curriculum may lead to boredom and underachievement. Instead, they should be given opportunities to explore complex and challenging tasks that encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. This will help them further develop their knowledge base and synthesize their previous learning effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which characteristic would not be observed in families of gifted children?

    • A.

      Early stimulation and enrichment given to children

    • B.

      Parents are younger than typical parents

    • C.

      Strong work ethic and valuing of achievement modeled by parents

    • D.

      Parenting style authoritative, rather than authoritarian or permissive

    Correct Answer
    B. Parents are younger than typical parents
    Explanation
    The characteristic that would not be observed in families of gifted children is that parents are younger than typical parents. Age of parents does not have a direct correlation with a child's giftedness. Other factors such as early stimulation, strong work ethic, and authoritative parenting style are more likely to be observed in families of gifted children.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Early learning should NOT include:

    • A.

      Exposure to reading material very early

    • B.

      Exposure to math during the first year

    • C.

      External rewards for good behavior

    • D.

      Practice with decision making and consequences

    Correct Answer
    C. External rewards for good behavior
    Explanation
    Exposing children to reading material very early is beneficial for their cognitive development and language skills. Similarly, introducing math concepts during the first year helps in building a strong foundation for future learning. Practice with decision making and consequences is important for children to develop problem-solving skills and learn from their actions. However, external rewards for good behavior may undermine intrinsic motivation and hinder the development of a child's sense of responsibility and moral values.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Which statements are true of gifted adolescents?

    • A.

      The environment has less effect on the brain of the gifted adolescent because the plasticity of the brain decreases during this period of life.

    • B.

      Gifted youths have little interest in complex intuitive or creative activities.

    • C.

      Gifted adolescent males often prefer more cognitive and aesthetic expression than physical activities having a strong element of daring that are preferred by their age peers.

    • D.

      Underachievement of gifted youth rises significantly during adolescence.

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. Gifted adolescent males often prefer more cognitive and aesthetic expression than physical activities having a strong element of daring that are preferred by their age peers.
    D. Underachievement of gifted youth rises significantly during adolescence.
    Explanation
    During adolescence, the brain of gifted adolescents becomes less influenced by the environment due to decreased plasticity. Gifted adolescent males tend to prefer activities that involve cognitive and aesthetic expression, rather than physical activities with a strong element of daring that are more popular among their peers. Additionally, underachievement among gifted youth becomes more prevalent during this stage of life.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The social-emotioanl adjustment of gifted children tends to proceed better than among the more typical population.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Gifted children often exhibit higher levels of social-emotional adjustment compared to their peers. This can be attributed to various factors such as their advanced cognitive abilities, increased self-awareness, and access to specialized educational programs that cater to their needs. Additionally, gifted children may find it easier to form relationships with like-minded individuals who share similar interests and abilities. However, it is important to note that social-emotional adjustment can still vary among gifted children, and individual experiences may differ.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    The more highly gifted the child, the more that social-emotional adjustment may be a problem.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that highly gifted children may face difficulties in social-emotional adjustment. This could be because their advanced intellectual abilities may make it challenging for them to relate to their peers or to fit into conventional social settings. They may feel isolated or misunderstood, leading to emotional struggles. Therefore, the statement is true, indicating that the higher the level of giftedness, the more likely social-emotional adjustment may become a problem for the child.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Gifted children are as advanced emotionally as they are cognitively.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Gifted children may be advanced cognitively, meaning they have a high intellectual ability, but their emotional development may not necessarily be at the same level. Emotional development is a separate aspect of a child's growth and can vary independently from their cognitive abilities. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that gifted children are as advanced emotionally as they are cognitively.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Even a small amount of education about gifted learners improves teachers' attitudes of acceptance and support for gifted students.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Education about gifted learners can help teachers understand the unique needs and characteristics of gifted students. This knowledge can lead to a shift in teachers' attitudes, making them more accepting and supportive of these students. With increased awareness and understanding, teachers may be better equipped to provide appropriate challenges, accommodations, and resources for gifted learners, ultimately fostering their growth and development. Therefore, the statement that even a small amount of education about gifted learners improves teachers' attitudes of acceptance and support for gifted students is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Gifted children have a strong sense of moral character regardless of who they are around as they develop.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because the development of moral character in gifted children is not solely dependent on their innate abilities. Like any other child, their moral character is influenced by their environment, upbringing, and the values they are exposed to. While gifted children may have certain traits that contribute to their moral development, it is not guaranteed that they will have a strong sense of moral character regardless of their surroundings.

    The students with healthy perfectionism would NOT:

    • A.

      Hold extremely high standards for self and others

    • B.

      Have an intense need for order and organization

    • C.

      Show self-acceptance of mistakes

    • D.

      Have parents with high expectation

    Correct Answer
    A. Hold extremely high standards for self and others
    Explanation
    Students with healthy perfectionism would not hold extremely high standards for themselves and others because healthy perfectionism involves striving for excellence and personal growth rather than striving for unrealistic and unattainable perfection. It is about setting realistic goals and being self-accepting of mistakes and imperfections. These students would understand that making mistakes is a natural part of the learning process and would not put excessive pressure on themselves or others to be flawless.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Which of the following social-emotional characteristics are NOT often found with gifted students?

    • A.

      More independent

    • B.

      More competitive

    • C.

      Realistic self-assessment and self-expectations

    • D.

      Less willing to compromise

    Correct Answer
    C. Realistic self-assessment and self-expectations
    Explanation
    Gifted students are often characterized by their high levels of independence, competitiveness, and unwillingness to compromise. However, they may not always have realistic self-assessment and self-expectations. This means that they may have a tendency to overestimate their abilities or set unrealistic goals for themselves. This can be attributed to their high levels of confidence and ambition, which may lead them to believe that they are capable of achieving anything. However, this lack of realistic self-assessment and self-expectations can sometimes hinder their growth and development as they may not accurately gauge their strengths and weaknesses.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Families that produce children with self-esteem DO NOT:

    • A.

      Set clear limits based on their child's ability to understand consequences

    • B.

      Are on good terms with each other

    • C.

      Regard the family as their major source of self-esteem and gratification

    • D.

      Relate to the environment in a caring way

    Correct Answer
    C. Regard the family as their major source of self-esteem and gratification
    Explanation
    Families that regard the family as their major source of self-esteem and gratification may put excessive pressure on their children to meet their expectations and may not allow them to develop their own sense of self-worth and independence. This can hinder the child's ability to develop a healthy self-esteem and can lead to feelings of inadequacy or dependency on others for validation.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    The holistic model of creativity synthesizes the rational, emotional, intuitive, and physical views of creativity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The holistic model of creativity encompasses various perspectives, including rational, emotional, intuitive, and physical aspects. This implies that creativity is not limited to a single approach or viewpoint, but rather a combination of different elements. By considering these different dimensions, individuals can tap into their rational thinking, emotional intelligence, intuition, and physical abilities to enhance their creative processes. Therefore, the statement "The holistic model of creativity synthesizes the rational, emotional, intuitive, and physical views of creativity" is true.

    Explanation
    The federal definition of gifted students includes creativity as an expression of giftedness. This means that according to federal guidelines, students who demonstrate exceptional creativity can be considered gifted.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    Children within the advantaged cultures show a higher creativity index than children of less advantaged cultures.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Children within advantaged cultures often have access to more resources, opportunities, and exposure to various experiences. This can contribute to their higher creativity index compared to children from less advantaged cultures who may have limited access to these resources. The advantages in terms of education, exposure to arts and culture, and parental support can enhance a child's creativity and cognitive development. Therefore, it is likely that children within advantaged cultures would exhibit a higher creativity index.

    The growth of creativity defined by test performance is not continuous, but rather makes a sharp drop at the fourth grade.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the growth of creativity, as measured by test performance, is not consistent but rather decreases significantly at the fourth grade. This implies that children tend to show a decline in their creative abilities after reaching the fourth grade level. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    People considered by those in their field as creative are identified as creative by tests of creativity giving such tests demonstrated validity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that people who are considered creative by their peers are also identified as creative by tests of creativity. However, this is not necessarily true as the statement assumes that tests of creativity have demonstrated validity in accurately identifying creativity. In reality, creativity is a complex and subjective trait that cannot be fully captured by standardized tests alone. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    Which of the following is NOT included in the research as a characteristic of creativity?

    • A.

      Self-disciplined, independent, often anti-authoritarian

    • B.

      Avoids conflict and tension

    • C.

      Concerned with the outside and inside worlds

    • D.

      Broad knowledge background

    Correct Answer
    B. Avoids conflict and tension
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because the other options are all characteristics that are commonly associated with creativity. Self-discipline, independence, and being often anti-authoritarian are traits that can contribute to thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. Being concerned with both the outside and inside worlds suggests a curiosity and openness to different perspectives. Having a broad knowledge background can provide a rich pool of ideas and connections to draw from. However, avoiding conflict and tension is not necessarily a characteristic of creativity. In fact, creative individuals often embrace conflict and tension as catalysts for innovation and growth.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Which of the following conditions inhibits the development of creativity?

    • A.

      External rewards

    • B.

      Development of high levels of knowledge

    • C.

      Openness

    • D.

      Lack of competition

    Correct Answer
    A. External rewards
    Explanation
    External rewards can inhibit the development of creativity because when individuals are motivated by external rewards such as money or recognition, they are more likely to focus on meeting the expectations of others rather than exploring new ideas or taking risks. This can lead to a fear of failure and a reluctance to think outside the box. In contrast, intrinsic motivation, driven by personal interest or enjoyment, is often associated with higher levels of creativity as individuals feel more free to explore and experiment without the pressure of external rewards.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    Which of the following is not used to measure creativity?

    • A.

      Tests of problem solving

    • B.

      Tests of divergent thinking

    • C.

      Tests of intelligence

    • D.

      Self-report measures of affective behavior

    Correct Answer
    C. Tests of intelligence
    Explanation
    Tests of intelligence are not used to measure creativity because intelligence and creativity are two separate constructs. Intelligence tests measure cognitive abilities such as logical reasoning, problem-solving, and memory, whereas creativity tests assess the ability to generate novel and valuable ideas. While there may be some overlap between intelligence and creativity, they are distinct constructs and require different assessment methods.

    The need for the identification of gifted students is, in part, created in the schools by the use of grade placement determined by chronological age, and the primary foucs on group instruction.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the identification of gifted students is indeed partly created in schools due to the use of grade placement based on chronological age and the emphasis on group instruction. By using these criteria, schools may overlook or underestimate the abilities and potential of gifted students who may not fit into the traditional mold of age-based grade placement or benefit from group instruction. Therefore, recognizing the need for identifying gifted students is important to ensure that they receive appropriate educational opportunities and support.

    Rate this question:

    Many gifted youngsters are discovered only after testing for a learning disability or Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) program.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Gifted youngsters may often go unnoticed or misunderstood because their abilities may not align with traditional educational expectations. They may display characteristics that are similar to those with learning disabilities or ADHD, such as difficulty focusing, impulsivity, or restlessness. As a result, they may be referred for testing to determine if they have a learning disability or ADHD. Through this process, their giftedness may be identified and appropriate support and enrichment opportunities can be provided. Therefore, it is true that many gifted youngsters are discovered only after testing for a learning disability or ADHD program.

    The IQ score gives an accurate measure of a person's capacity and is a good identification tool for that reason.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because while IQ scores can provide some insight into a person's cognitive abilities, they are not a comprehensive measure of intelligence. Intelligence is a complex and multifaceted trait that cannot be fully captured by a single test or score. Additionally, IQ tests may be influenced by various factors such as cultural bias, test-taking skills, and individual motivation. Therefore, relying solely on IQ scores to identify a person's capacity would be inaccurate and incomplete.

    Rate this question:

    A major problem in finding gifted children among the students who are disabled is that teachers expect the disabled child's needs and any unusual behaviors to be the result of the disability.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Teachers often have preconceived notions that a disabled child's needs and behaviors are solely attributed to their disability. This assumption can lead to overlooking or dismissing signs of giftedness in disabled students. Consequently, gifted disabled children may not receive the appropriate support and opportunities to develop their talents and abilities. Therefore, it is true that a major problem in identifying gifted children among disabled students is the expectation that their needs and behaviors are solely a result of their disability.

    Identification of gifted children need NOT include:

    • A.

      General intellectual ability

    • B.

      A variety of evaluative tools

    • C.

      An IQ score

    • D.

      Student achievement

    Correct Answer
    C. An IQ score
    Explanation
    The identification of gifted children does not necessarily need to include an IQ score. While an IQ score can be one of the evaluative tools used to assess general intellectual ability, it is not the only criteria for identifying giftedness. Other factors such as student achievement, specific talents or skills, and a variety of evaluative tools can also be used to identify gifted children. Therefore, an IQ score is not a mandatory requirement for the identification of gifted children.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. The identification be based on a single score from a reliable instrument
    D. Instruments for under-served populations are different and separate from the tools given to the other children
    Explanation
    The identification of students for gifted programs should not be based solely on a single score from a reliable instrument. This is because giftedness is a complex concept that cannot be accurately captured by a single test score. It is recommended to use a broad conception of giftedness, taking into account multiple criteria and sources of information. Additionally, it is important to ensure that the instruments used for identifying gifted students are valid for the specific program rationale and definition of giftedness. It is not recommended to have separate instruments for under-served populations, as this can perpetuate inequality and limit opportunities for these students.
