Overview of the quiz
This quiz is designed to help you evaluate if your child is gifted and give you a better understanding of their abilities. The quiz consists of questions about your child’s academic ability, problem-solving skills, creativity, and social skills.
The quiz can help you determine if your child should be assessed for giftedness, and provide you with more information about how to best provide for your child’s academic needs.
This quiz can also be used by educators, parents, caregivers, and others who are concerned with giftedness in children.
Questions about your child’s academic ability
Is your child easily bored in school? Do they seem to already know the information being taught in class? If so, your child may be academically gifted.
Ability is often measured by proficiency in core subjects, such as reading, writing, and math. Academic giftedness can be determined by measuring proficiency, as well as your child’s intellectual capacity.
A gifted child is likely to have a high intellectual capacity, which is a measure of a child’s ability to solve problems and think critically. Your child may also be gifted if he or she shows a precocious (early) interest in a specific subject or topic.
Questions about your child’s problem-solving skills
Problem-solving and critical thinking skills indicate giftedness in children. A gifted child is likely to think outside the box, be creative, and enjoy complex problems and puzzles.
Problem-solving gifted children tend to enjoy activities that challenge them, such as advanced studies or competitive sports. In general, gifted children enjoy activities that allow them to use their problem-solving skills, such as reading challenging books or participating in activities that require critical thinking.
Questions about your child’s creativity
Gifted children may have a high level of creativity. Creativity is often measured as the ability to think outside the box, explore a wide variety of ideas and topics, and use a variety of mediums to communicate ideas. If your child enjoys writing, drawing, painting, or other artistic activities, they may be gifted.
Additionally, gifted children tend to have a high level of curiosity and be interested in topics that most children don’t explore. Areas of giftedness are likely to include the arts, natural sciences, and social sciences.
Questions about your child’s social skills
Gifted children often have excellent social skills. This includes the ability to get along with others, create and maintain friendships, and understand social concepts. These abilities can be measured by how your child plays with other children, the types of toys they prefer (such as board games versus action figures), and their interests.
Gifted children tend to enjoy complex topics and are often more mature and interested in topics that are beyond their peers. They may also be more interested in adults and other children within the family.
How to interpret the results
Interpreting the results of this quiz is a multi-step process. First, you should determine your child’s potential level of giftedness based on your answers.
Next, you should consider the strengths and weaknesses of your child’s abilities to determine if they fit the criteria of a gifted child. Finally, you should consider the results of the quiz about your child’s daily life.
Your child may be gifted in certain areas, but there is no one-size-fits-all definition of giftedness.
The quiz can help you determine your child’s potential for giftedness and provide you with more information about how to best provide for your child’s academic needs.
