GATE Test – Gifted and Talented Education Testing

We’ve launched a new section detailing GATE tests! – Check it out here: More GATE test information

The gifted and talented test is sometimes called GATE test for short. The GATE test isn’t a specific test but just a general term used when someone refers to gifted and talented testing in general. There are several different types of GATE tests that are used today.

According to Wikipedia: Intellectual giftedness is an intellectual ability significantly higher than average. Various ideas about the definition, development, and best ways of identifying intellectual giftedness have been put forward. Intellectual giftedness may be general or specific. For example, an intellectually gifted person may have a striking talent for mathematics, but not have equally strong language skills.
