Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

When a student consistently achieves scores at the 99th percentile on grade level assessments, it can be difficult to tell what the student's academic needs really are. 

Northwestern University's Midwest Academic Talent Search (NUMATS) utilizes above-grade-level assessment, as a means of gifted testing, to help parents and educators better understand their students’ educational needs. This session will cover the background of academic talent search, the nuts and bolts of the NUMATS Toolbox, ideas for using scores to advocate, as well as cautions, and other resources.
