Product Details

The Gifted Rating Scales are norm-referenced rating scales based on current theories of giftedness and federal and state guidelines regarding the definition of gifted and talented students. Pre-school and Kindergarten teachers complete the Pre-School/Kindergarten GRS-P form for children between the ages of 4:0 and 6:11 years. This form of GRS–P contains brief scales covering five domains: intellectual, academic readiness, motivation, creativity and artistic talent. Teachers complete six brief scales on the School-Age GRS–S form to evaluate children between the ages of 6:0 through 13:11 years who are in grades 1 - 8. The six domains include: intellectual, academic, motivation, creativity, leadership and artistic talent.


  • GRS–P (4:0-6:11) validity studies have been conducted linking it to the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence™—Third Edition (WPPSI™–III) and measures of potential in other domains.
  • GRS–S (6:0-13:11) validity studies have been conducted linking it to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children®—Third Edition (WISC®–III), and the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test®—Second Edition (WIAT®–II) and measures in other domains.


  • Both forms of the GRS provides a standardized method for identifying children for gifted and talented programs based on teacher observations.
  • Both forms of the GRS allows for identification of relative strengths and specific areas of giftedness.
  • Both forms of the GRS provides specific behavioral guidelines for identification of giftedness within each domain.
  • Teachers can complete both forms of the GRS easily and quickly.
