Item #04100The Gifted Evaluation Scale-Third Edition (GES-3) aids in the identification and program planning for children and adolescents in the school setting. Each subscale is associated with one of the five characteristics identified in federal and state regulations, including the Gifted and Talented Children’s Act of 1978 and the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act of 1988.

The GES-3 has 48 items and 6 subscales: Intellectual, Creativity, Specific Academic Aptitude, Leadership Ability, and Performing and Visual Arts. Results can be used to make decisions about eligibility, placement, and services in gifted and talented programs. An optional subscale, Motivation, has been developed to accommodate those states which require documentation of this characteristic in the identification process of gifted/talented students.

Internal consistency, test-retest, and inter-rater reliability; item and factor analysis; and content, criterion-related, diagnostic, and construct validity are reported in the technical manual. Five types of scores may be obtained: frequency rating for each item (reflecting the degree of success in performing a behavior), subscale raw score (the sum of the frequency ratings for each subscale), subscale standard score (a consistent basis for comparing students), percentile (a measure for comparing the student’s performance to the performance of other students), and a quotient score (a global index of all characteristics measured within the total scale). Using the subscale standard scores, a profile of the student’s level of functioning across the five subscales may be constructed.
 
Characteristics and Components of the GES-3
 
  • The GES-3 is based on the Gifted and Talented Children’s Act of 1978 (PL 95-561, Section 902) and the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act of 1988.

  • The GES-3 was standardized on 2,288 students.
  • The standardization population included students from 16 states and represented all geographic regions of the United States.

  • Factor analysis confirmed the six GES-3 subscales.

  • The GES-3 provides separate norms for male and female students ages 5 through 18.

  • The GES-3 can be completed in approximately 15 minutes and includes 48 items easily observed and documented by educational personnel.

  • The Gifted Intervention Manual includes goals, objectives, and interventions for all 48 items on the scale.

  • An optional subscale, Motivation, is available.
