OUROFINO, Vanessa Terezinha Alves Tentes de; FLEITH, Denise de Souza  y  GONCALVES, Fernanda do Carmo. Factors Associated with Low Academic Performance of Gifted Students. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2011, vol.5, n.1, pp.28-38. ISSN 1982-1247.

This paper aims to analyse factors associated with low academic performance of gifted students. This condition, known as underachievement, is characterized by imbalance between the potential and proven performance in tasks in school and in life. The most common factors in the literature are individual or internal - motivation, self-concept, creativity - and the external or environmental ones, such as family and school. It is expected that this study help experts, educators and families to recognize the existence of this condition and related factors, so they can offer proper training and educational practices to the needs and characteristics of this subpopulation of gifted students.

Palabras clave : Gifted students; underachievement; gifted underachievers; associated factors.
