AG Screening Process
GCS Grades 3-5 Academically Gifted Program Screening Process
Screening for Academically Gifted (AG) services begins in the Fall of third grade when all GCS students are administered the Cognitive Abilities Test. AG Program Facilitators and AG Teachers review all test scores and continue with the screening process for those students who meet the eligibility criteria.
All students in grades 3-5 are screened at the end of each year for possible AG eligibility as data becomes available from the End of Grade Tests (EOGs).
Students who are new to GCS will be screened for AG services as indicators of high academic performance are presented to the school-based Team for Academically Gifted (TAG). These indicators may be presented to the TAG by the AG teacher, classroom teacher, parents, student, or community members.
