Department od Education, NTNU
This paper was mainly an attempt to study whether differences exist in cognitive abilities, academic achievements and adjustment problems between the gifted of 6th grade in an experimental and a non─experimental program. The gifted samples were also compared with a reference sample of 7th grade to evaluate their mature level in the mentioned variables. The gifted sample employed for this study included an experimental group （143 boys；54 girls） and a non─experimental group（98 boys；92 girls）. Both of the groups met the criteria as the gifted. A reference group（216 boys；169 girls）that is representative in intelligence level was drawn from a stratified random sampling procedure. Cognitive Abilities Test, Global Academic Achievement Test, and California Test of Personality were administered to the subjects. All instruments used met reasonable standards of reliability and validity. The data obtained were analyzed by TWO─FACTOR ANOVA with unequal N's and Scheff'e Method of multiple comparisons. The major findings were as follows：1. The mean scores of the experimental group on cognitive abilities were significantly higher than the non─experimental group. Also, both group's cognitive abilities were significantly higher than the reference group. 2. The verbal and mathematic achievements revealed no significant differences between two gifted groups. Two gifted groups showed obvious superity in verbal achievement than the reference group, but no significant differences were found in mathematic achievement. 3. As for personal or social adjustment, the non─experimental group led the three groups, with the reference group coming second, followed only by the experimental group.
