Validity of giftedness based on clusters
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 13, issue 2, 2003, Pages 1~22
The purpose of the present study is to examine implicit capabilities of giftedness by Korean adults and to validate the features of giftedness by asking the gifted students in science, liberal arts, and ordinary. Existing researches have problems as follows; they will make a high error when we distinguish gifted students who applied to various changeable conditions because they only use total score without their sub-attributes and because they designed from the viewpoint of age. And they are difficult and complex for students to understand. This study is composed of two parts, Study 1 and Study 2. In study 1, we examined and analyzed the Korean's implicit concept of giftedness to 328 adults. In Study 2, the features of the Koreans' implicit concept for giftedness were validated to 1154 students in science, liberal arts, and ordinary. Giftedness features and patterns were identified by factor analysis. In the last place, we suggested the distribution of T-value scale for each feature of giftedness.
The Development of Motivation Scale in the Visual Artistic Giftedness of the Elementary School Children
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 13, issue 2, 2003, Pages 23~41
The purpose of this study was to develop the instruments which can measure motivation as a component of Visual Artistic Giftedness with in elementary school period. This study prescribed the variable factors of measurement after abstract and classify the characteristics of Visual Artistic Giftedness through literature studies. And it produced instruments those are finally composed of 27 items through the preliminary test. They were evaluated in terms of content validity, construct validity, and reliability by implementing them to 679 elementary school children from the first to sixth grades. Statistical analyses were carried out to verify the validities and reliability. Content validity was found to be satisfactory by experts' evaluation on the test items. Construct validity was also found to be satisfactory through factor analyses which showed the four factors which the identification instruments were intended to measure such as, interest/ attitude/ taste, endurance/ concentration, curiosity/ imagination! sensitiveness, aesthetic. Concurrent validity was also found to be satisfactory with high coeffients of Barron- Welsh which were calculated as .76 in motivation. In conclusion, the instruments about motivation of Visual Artistic Giftedness during elementary school period developed by this study are highly reliable on its reliability and validity.
Application and development of the web-based distant learning materials for elementary gifted students in science: Part 1
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 13, issue 2, 2003, Pages 43~56
In this study, learning materials that can be applied for web-based distant learning model were developed based on the characteristics of elementary school science in which investigation skills and thinking ability are considered to be important. And the effect of students' activity in a discussion room on student's investigating and thinking ability was investigated. Through very active on-line discussion, students showed their ability to come up with new ideas and to design and implement diverse experimental methods. Especially, since all of the study tasks given to the students were aimed to utilize experimental means and tools that are so common in everyday life, shortfalls that might reside in the web-based distant learning program could be overcome and students' investigative activity might be stimulated.
Perception for occupations of science gifted/talented middle school students′ analysing 'self-portraits after 20 years'
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 13, issue 2, 2003, Pages 57~71
This study is to examine and compare the preference for occupation, reasons of preference for occupations, and confidence of occupations or future of them by analysing 'self-portraits after 20 years' of science gifted/talented. The level of preference for talent-related occupations of gifted/talented students was merely 29.2, whereas that for medical world was 32.6%(the highest level). 74% of them had confidence of that their own dream or hope come true. Main reasons of selecting occupation for the future were 'service for social-national development', and 'convenience for life'. It is necessary to endeavor nationally, socially, and educationally to develop interest and preference of the science gifted/talented for science-related occupations, and confidence for the future, and contribute talents of them to nation.
A Study on Science-gifted Children's Adjustment, Self-Perception, Social Support, and Stress
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 13, issue 2, 2003, Pages 73~94
In this study, it was compared how different the adjustment, self-perception, social support and stress between science-gifted children and general children, and the difference between gifted boys and girls. And it was identified what are the effects on stress of science-gifted children. The subjects were 89 science-gifted children of the first grade in Middle School at JeonJu. Science-gifted students in this study were identified through the teacher nomination and CNU(ChonbukNational University) Science & Math Tests. We used the standard object as the comparative group (general children). The results of this study were as follow; First, all personal-adjustment and social-adjustment domains, self-perception and teacher support of science-gifted children were significantly higher than those of general children. All disadjustment domains, parent support and friend support of science-gifted children were significantly lower than those of general children. Second, the self-planning, prejudice, social competence, behavioral conduct, global self worth, parent support, teacher support and classmate support of the science-gifted children had the significant difference according to the gender. Third, the motive of accomplishment, self-planning, attachment and social-affirmation of the science-gifted children correlated negatively with their stress. Fourth, the social competence, athletic competence, physical appearance, behavioral conduct, global self worth and social support of the science-gifted children correlated negatively with their stress. The global self worth of the science-gifted children had the significant difference according to the variables such as teacher support, close friend support, parent support and classmate support in the other of name. The most influential factor was teacher support. The stress of the science-gifted children had the significant difference according to the variables such as parent support, close friend support and global self worth in the other of name. The most influential factor was parent support.
Research on the change of consciousness of the gifted students in science
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 13, issue 2, 2003, Pages 95~112
The purpose of this study is to look into Various educational supports for the gifted students in science to decide proper career planning through Research of Career Consciousness of the Gifted Students in Science. The subject of this study is new students entered into KAIST from the year of 1996 to 2003. They are approximately 500 students yearly and 3,613 totally and more than 90% of students have answered. The Questions are largely 3 items. One is 5 Q's of entering universities, second is 2 Q's of life plans in the university and the last is 2 Q's of career plans after graduation. As a result, the gifted students in science tend to find out and develop their interest and aptitude early and decide their future much earlier than other students. Nevertheless the gifted students in science worry about their future a lot as well. However they ask their problems to friends, seniors, and parents rather than teachers, professional consultants in general it could say no sufficient systematic guidance and consulting available for them. So it does require that some subjects such as guidance for career planning should be included in university curriculum and furthermore not only schooling but also the systematic structure of persistent consulting about gifted student's general life should be planned as well.
Application and development of the web-based distant learning materials for elementary gifted students in science: Part 2
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 13, issue 2, 2003, Pages 113~130
In this study, learning materials that can be applied for web-based distant learning model were developed based on the characteristics of elementary school science in which investigation skills and thinking ability are considered to be important. And the effect of students' activity in a reports on student's investigating and thinking ability was investigated. While designing diverse experimental procedures, the students had. an opportunity to improve their observation attitude and way of scientific thinking. Such improvement was possible, only because the present web-based distant learning model consists of requiring an interaction between the students and a report and evaluation system which can put together such effort. Still, it was acknowledged that, as being in lack of teacher's direct support and supervision, the present web-based distant learning model might be somewhat ineffective in guiding the students in accordance with their own characteristics. For example, the students had a tendency to maintain their basic idea and style even when their reports are individually examined and corrected in terms of the format of the report.
