NAKANO, Tatiana de Cássia  e  OLIVEIRA, Karina da Silva. Giftedness Indicators Screening Scale: factorial structure. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.4, pp. 448-456. ISSN 1677-0471.

The relevance of the assessment of giftedness can be understood within a proposal that seeks to highlight the strengths, aptitudes and talents of individuals, aiming for the prevention of social and emotional problems resulting from lack of identification. Accordingly, its proximity to the ideas of Positive Psychology can be affirmed. Considering the lack of specific instruments for evaluating this phenomenon, the development of a screening scale of indicators of giftedness was initiated. Among the studies to investigate its psychometric qualities, the present study presents the results of the confirmatory factorial analysis. The data from 216 evaluations, performed by teachers of students of grades 2 to 9 of elementary education, were analyzed. Adequate fit indices were found, confirming a multidimensional theoretical model, composed of five domains in which giftedness can be manifested: general intellectual ability, specific academic abilities, leadership, creativity and artistic talent.
