The Screening Assessment for Gifted Elementary and Middle School Students – Second Edition (SAGES-2) is helpful in identifying gifted students.
Its three subtests sample aspects of two of the most commonly used areas for identifying gifted students:
The student is asked to solve analogical problems by identifying relationships among pictures and figures.
On one of these subtests the child answers questions about language arts and social studies, and on the other, about mathematics and science. The student selects answers from a series of pictures, symbols, or words. The subtests can be used to examine the relationships between aptitude and achievement.
