I have a quick question about testing for gifted. In our town the school system tests kids for gifted every year, if they meet some sort of minimum requirements, so that they can fast track them in math and science classes, last year two of my children were tested, one scored about 131 and the other was closer to 117 or so if I remember correctly. Oddly enough, the one with the lower score is the one that seems to show several characteristics of giftedness, but also does poorly on tests and things that he has to pay attention to, while the other is much more average, but still smart, and really enjoys tests, puzzles and those types of things. Is it at all possible that one child my have gotten a better score than the other because of the fact that she enjoys that type of thing, while the other is more spacey and doesn't really pay attention as well as he should? It just really doesn't make sense to me.
