About the Middle School Gifted Program
Students are identified for gifted services based on their IOWA and CogAt scores. These tests are administered to Gahanna students in 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade. To qualify for services, a student must have a 129 Composite (SAS) score on the IOWA test and a Math Total (NPR) of 95. These assessments are norm-referenced.
Ohio Achievement Assessment scores are not used to identify gifted students or place them in gifted programming. These assessments are criteria-referenced.
If a student qualifies for gifted math services, he or she will be placed either in ACE6 or Accelerated 7. Placement is determined by 5th grade performance and the Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test.
The progression of classes is as follows:
