The GATES is an innovative, quick approach for identifying students ages 5 to 18 who are gifted and talented. Based on the most current federal and state definitions, the GATES satisfies the critical national need for a norm-referenced instrument that assesses the characteristics, skills, and talents of gifted students. The GATES was normed in 1995 on a representative national sample of over 1,000 persons who were identified as gifted and talented.
