This article describes the process of identification of intellectually gifted students in Sarajevo Canton. The goal of the identification was to select those students who could benefit from a significant improvement in psychological welfare by participating in the “Winter school for gifted students”. The identification was designed according to contemporary theories of giftedness and according to the specific nature of the program. Identification took place in three phases: nomination by a teacher and two phases of selection. The instruments used in selection were the Raven Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM), Mill Hill Vocabulary Scale (MHV), the Problem test (PT) and the Torrance test of creative thinking, verbal form (TTK). The results of nominated students were compared with the results of students from a comparative sample. Results indicated that selected students possessed higher general ability, and higher ability in problem solving and creative thinking. Gifted students were selected by the procedure described. It is reasonable to expect that these students will satisfy the high cognitive requirements of the program planned for gifted students.

    ABSTRACT: The researchers used the theory of work adjustment (R. V. Dawis & L. H. Lofquist, 1984; L. H. Lofquist & R. V. Dawis, 1991) and C. P. Snow's (1959) conceptualization of two cultures as theoretical frameworks to analyze the incremental validity of above-level preference assessment (relative to abilities) in predicting humanities, math-science, and other college majors completed 10 years later by intellectually gifted adolescents. Scholastic Aptitude Tests and Study of Values assessments of 432 intellectually gifted adolescents (age 13) provided unique and valuable information for predicting the type of college major completed 10 years after initial assessment. These positive findings add to growing support for the applied utility of teaming preference assessments among the gifted with above-level assessments of ability. For intellectually gifted adolescents, these assessments could facilitate educational planning (and counseling). (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
