This investigation was designed to determine whether there were similarities in the behavioral ratings of developmentally and culturally different gifted children, and whether norms could be developed for the Scales for Rating the Behavioral Characteristics of Superior Students (SRBCSS). The SRBCSS was used by teachers to rate gifted students' learning, motivational, creative, and leadership characteristics. The effects of ethnicity, grade, sex, and SES were examined and found to influence teachers' behavior ratings of gifted students significantly. It was concluded SRBCSS norms, local or national, when constructed should consider these variables.
