Gifted testing is conducted to determine if a child meets the gifted criteria in order to enter this type of academic program in a public or private school. To identify intellectual giftedness, SMPG administers one of the following intelligence tests (IQ test): Wechsler Intelligence Test for Children-Fourth Edition (WISC-V), Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence- Fourth Edition (WPPSI-IV), or the Woodcock Johnson-IV. Upon completion of the IQ test, parents/caregivers are then provided with a comprehensive report detailing test results and recommendations.
