[quote:Anonymous Coward 458781:MV85NjMyNjNfMTUwMjA3NTVfM0RCMkEwNUU=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 728979] [b]My daugther is in GT, gifted and talented, im proud of her because we (her parents) are from Mexico, we speak like 40-50% english, i thought that school for her was going to be hard because spanish was her first language, but it is 4 years of her being the top of her class, is funny this thread, a coincidence perhaps, today I receive a letter of the DUKE TIP, a program of DUKE University, to enroll our childm does anybody know something about that program?[/b] I don't know about that program specifically, but traditionally Duke University has been [i]highly [/i]involved in psychic research programs. [/quote] [b]thnks 728979, this is what i found abiut DUKE TIP[/b] TIP (Talent Identification Program) is a program that identifies gifted children based on standardized test scores and provides resources to assist in nurturing their development. Being part of TIP means that the gifted child has access to programs and services that may not be available at school. Although not required, a big advantage of being in TIP is the opportunity for fourth and fifth grade students to take seventh grade level standardized tests. When they reach seventh grade, they take college entrance exams like the SAT. What's the point? Gifted kids often score so high on their own grade-level testing that the results are not useful because they fail to measure variation. Taking above-level tests gives gifted students and their families a better understanding the student's level relative to gifted peers. This is helpful in determining appropriate challenges for that particular student. Above-level testing can pinpoint areas of strength as well as demonstrate to the child (and school administration if necessary) the child's advanced ability. Tangible test scores can be a strong motivator for kids who may not otherwise realize their uniqueness. When seventh grade kids take the college entrance exams they receive information about university level resources available to them based on their scores. This can be invaluable both academically and financially. [/quote]

Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?
Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
