The system for identifying gifted and talented students tells us that highly productive people are characterized by three clusters of ability that overlap: above average ability, task commitment, and creativity. The focus of this specific flowchart is to begin to analyze your student's ability to be "creative." Be mindful that they do not have to have ALL characteristics to be gifted. Use this as a guide in aiding your decision to make a referral.
