A study on the development of the children′s motivation of achievement Scale
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 14, issue 1, 2004, Pages 1~27
Our purpose is to make up criteria for children's motivation of achievement and develop them into reliable that effectively fit the domestic situations, through testing its reliability and validity. With a view to developing those criteria, questionnaire items were drawn out from our basic investigation and preliminary study, and reliability and validity were tested. For this, we carried out a survey from October 25, 2003 to November 7, 2003 on 586 children who were attending two primary schools in Seoul, in 5th and 6th grade, and analyzed the results. Out of 81 questionnaire items constructed through the preliminary study, we extracted 68 items which show satisfactory level of discrimination with
confidence level p<.0l and V coefficient greater than .25. The factor analysis was performed on the 68 items and 49 items were extracted which have eigen value greater than 1 and factor load greater than .30. Then regression analysis was applied so that 13 items were taken out of consideration for the criteria, whose incremental contribution to the explained proportion due to regression turned out to be less than 3%. As a result, a total of 36 items were selected as the final measurement criteria was assessed by Cronbach'
coefficient for the items, and we obtained its value of .85 which is at a satisfactory level. The developed criteria has proven to be a useful tool for measuring domestic children's motivation of achievement.
Student apprentices' and mentors' perceptions on a science research apprenticeship program
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 14, issue 1, 2004, Pages 29~46
This study investigated a 7-week summer science research apprenticeship program for gifted high school students in U.S. The purpose of the study was to examine the reasons why the high school student participated in the program, the students' perceptions on the benefits of the apprenticeship program, and to investigate mentors' perceptions on assessment and mentorship of the students' projects. For this study, laboratory works and group meetings were observed, students' journal and research products were analyzed, and interviews were administrated with student apprentices and some mentors. The result revealed that the main reasons of students' participation were to perform research with university professionals, to understand the scientific research, and to explore their college/career decisions. Students' participation was strongly associated with their internal motivation and interests. The students perceived the benefits of the apprenticeship program as providing them with the experience of the nature of real scientific research, of learning of scientific knowledge on the focus area, and wiser college/career decisions. Students' projects were assessed and guided through on-going interactions and cognitive apprenticeship between mentors and student apprentices.
A study on the stress, perfectionism, optimism and academic achievement of the scientifically gifted
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 14, issue 1, 2004, Pages 47~64
The purpose of this study was to explore the differences in stress, perfectionism, optimism and academic achievement between the scientifically gifted middle school students and general students and the relationships between stress, perfectionism, optimism and academic achievement in these two groups. 154 scientifically gifted middle school students and 145 general students from C middle school in Inchon were participated in this study as subjects. The result of this study were as fellow; In case of the gifted group, perfectionism were higher than the comparative group. However, the stress of the comparative group was higher than the gifted group. The gifted groups felt less stresses than the comparative group. In case of the gifted group, optimism were higher than the comparative group. However, It is independent in the co-relationships stress, perfectionism, optimism and academic. achievement of the scientifically gifted and general students.
Directions of Science Education for the Gifted and Scientific Creativity
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 14, issue 1, 2004, Pages 65~89
The article attempts to suggest s a direction of science education in terms of development of creative human resources based on discussion about scientific literacy and scientific creativity. Students are supposed to develop scientific attitude, inquiry skills, problem solving ability through science learning, and be prepared for the 21st century of rapidly developing age. The paper introduces definitions of scientific literacy and scientific creativity and discuss their meanings within science education in general as well as for the gifted. To enhance students' scientific creativity, science education should strengthen content of science related to technology, integrated science content, personal and social views, social inquiry for problem solving. In particular, science education for the gifted should emphasize students' holistic views in interpreting data, ability to connect artistic aspects to science process, intuitions to explain scientific phenomena and pursue of personal satisfaction. It may be said that science education and science education for the gifted is realized when students have opportunities to experience such elements in their science learning.
The necessity and direction of verbally gifted education
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 14, issue 1, 2004, Pages 91~114
The purposes of this study were to review the necessity and establish the direction of verbally gifted education. To fulfil purposes, the following studies were carried out: (1) The necessity of verbally gifted education was reviewed based on the social, educational and personal aspect.

Or verbal talent can also be a person who accomplished a high level in anyone area among reading, writing, hearing, speaking, and foreign language. (3) The present condition and research states of verbally gifted education were analyzed. (4) The direction of verbally gifted education were proposed.
