Kim, Boo-Yoon ; Jeon, Mi-Jeong ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 16, issue 1, 2006, Pages 1~19
This research is the one, that is, analyze the results of SSH at the science and mathematics subject for the advanced student in Japan recently, and searched for the result and the problem. We analyze reported results separately in detail according to the item for the practical report that the school of the whole country where SSH had been experimented from 2002 to 2004 in 31 places had issued for this. Also we discuss some suggestions and ideas for the mathematics and science instruction on the science high school in Korea.

The object of this research is to analyze the contents and amount of articles on gifted education in major daily newspapers dated January 1990 to December 2003, and to review the trend of social perception of gifted education with the passage of time. Following are the research question : 1. How many articles belonging to the same category appeared in the newspapers within the period of time covered by the study? 2. What kinds of articles appeared in the newspapers within the period of time covered by the study? To arrive at the answers to the problems mentioned above, 714 articles on gifted education. The period from 1990 to 2003 were divided into time frames of 5 years to facilitate the analysis of social consciousness regarding gifted education before and after the enforcement of the Early School Entering Law in 1995 and the Law for Promotion of Gifted Education in 2000. The researcher defined Period I as the years from 1990 to 1994, Period II from 1995 to 1999, and Period III from 2000 to 2003. The articles were classified by content which were significance and trend of gilled education, current policies on gifted education, information on gifted education, and social environment of gifted education. The results of the analysis are as follows: (1) The articles from 1990 to 2003 totalled 714. 130 articles were found within Period I, 213 within Period II, and 371 within Period III. Since the year 2000, when the Law for Promotion of gifted education was enforced, the amount of articles considerably increased. The articles on the trend of gifted education numbered 42 within Period I, 49 within Period II, and 81 within Period III, showing a huge increase in the last period. The articles on current policies numbered 56 within Period I, 77 within Period II, and 143 within Period III, numbering the most in the last period. This means that, even before the Law for Promotion of gifted education was enforced, there has been much interest in and discussion of the appropriate educational system for gifted children in preparation for the legal and institutional foundation of such system. Since the enforcement of the law, many institutions were established and the problem became an important social issue. The articles that most frequently appeared were about current policies on and status of gifted education. This category showed the largest numbers through all the three periods and on all the subjects. This subject represented 43.1% of the articles on gifted children within Period I, 36.2% within Period II, and 38.6% within Period III. As to the significance and trend of gifted education, this subject showed a decrease from 32.3% within Period I, 23% within Period II, and 21.8% within Period III. However, the articles in the category of information on gifted education gradually increased from they represented 5.4% of the articles on brilliant children within Period I, 7.5% within Period II, and 8.4% within Period III. The social environment articles showed an increase from Period I to Period II-- from 19.2% to 33.3%, but it went down to 31.3% within Period III. (2) As to articles on the trend of gifted education, there were many such articles found, mainly on researches and trends in other countries. As greater importance is accorded to gifted children and as the recognition of the necessity of providing specific education for them grows, more related studies are conducted and people try to adopt new trends from other countries. For the articles on the current policies of gifted education, most of them were about institutions. This means that many educational institutions have been established since the Law for Promotion of Gifted Education was enforced. Informative articles on gilled education were mostly about distinctive features of gifted children and how to tell who the brilliant children are. This fact shows the importance of identifying gifted children in order to educate them systemically and effectively.
A Study of Exploring Relation between Talent Search Procedure and Scientific Experiment Designing of the Gifted : A Case of Earth Science

Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 16, issue 1, 2006, Pages 43~60
This study mainly intended to investigate the relation between scientific inquiry and several entrance exam results of the gifted in earth science gifted program. The scientific inquiry was tested with their experiment designs. Entrance exams included achievement scores, creativity scores, problem solving, and oral test of high ability students. Student entrance scores were used to judge the level of students' competency in science. Recently students' ability of 'doing science' as measured by their designing experiments has been highly appreciated as a criteria of scientifically gifted students. One of the well known tests was Diet Cola Test developed by Fowler(1990). We used it as a test to figure out students' experiment design ability. We selected 22 gifted students in earth science. We compared their entrance test scores and Diet Cola Test results. Based on the comparison results we proposed several guideline of science education program for high ability students.

The purpose of this study is to develop the programming language teaching materials for the gifted of information with using the game. There are many curricula for teaching the information and technology to the gifted of information. There are not differences between these programs and the general IT curricula. The gifted of information has some complains about his curriculum(58/60, 96.67%). So this study developed the alternative programming language teaching materials for the gifted of information. This study concluded the effects of alternative materials for teaching programming language depend on learners' academic achievement about programming language with game activity. This study also looks forward to being able to indicate new direction to develop the teaching materials for the gifted of information.

Lee, Jae-Ho ; Lee, Jae-Su ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 16, issue 1, 2006, Pages 81~100
In this paper, it conducted the following works to develop the selective test for the gifted of information science in elementary schools. First, it presented the discrete mathematical thinking as an essential competence of elementary information science gifted, through theoretical research with many expert's studies, in order to investigate the definition and characteristics of information science gifted. Second, it developed a test to measure the discrete mathematical thinking, according to the results of analysis of discrete mathematical elements, appeared in the 7th national mathematics curriculum, in order to extract the characteristics of selective test for elementary information science gifted. Third, regarding the verification of items in a newly developed test, it adjusted the difficulty and discrimination by conducting 2 sessions of preliminary test, and then finally confirmed that the standards of items in the test, by testifying sufficient level of validity after the application to a main experiment.
