Abstract

The predictive validity of a recently published behavioral rating scale for identifying gifted and creative students (Scales for Rating the Behavioral Characteristics of Superior Students [SRBCSS]) was investigated for three ethnic by socioeconomic groups. Regression analyses were computed between the SRBCSS and both the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) and a standardized intelligence test. The results indicated low to moderate relationships between the variables for Anglos from mid-high and low socioeconomic backgrounds. Correlations were higher for a group of low socioeconomic Hispanics, with the highest correlations being between the Reading Comprehension subtest of the SAT and the Creative scales of the SRBCSS. Implications for practice and future investigations are discussed.
