National Center for Research on Gifted Education

Funded by the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education, the National Center for Research on Gifted Education was launched to address how gifted and talented programs are implemented in schools, how long students participate and at what level of intensity, and whether these programs are effective in improving students’ academic outcomes. Specifically, the Center will examine the extent of gifted programming and student participation in three states; identify districts and schools that show high achievement growth rates among gifted students, including those from underserved groups; and explore how these sites successfully identify, serve, and retain students from underrepresented groups in gifted programs.
