FLANAGAN, Andrea  and  ARANCIBIA, Violeta. Academic Talent: Analysis of the Identification of Talented Students by Teachers. Psykhe [online]. 2005, vol.14, n.1, pp.121-135. ISSN 0718-2228.

This article reports on a quantitative study which pretends to characterize, on their general and specific academic abilities in language and writing, logics and mathematics, natural sciences and social sciences, a population of 810 students perceived as academically talented by their teachers and nominated to be integrated to the first stage of PENTA-UC Program, and to establish some relations between contextual factors and the characterization made by teachers. Subjects belong to public schools from La Florida and Puente Alto. Out of them, 169 were finally appointed to PENTA-UC. Comparison of the two groups (169 vs. 641) shows they are similar in all evaluated dimensions except in the specific ability in logics and mathematics.

Keywords : academic talent; identification; teachers.
