Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP)

                                                   What is a Talent Search?

Duke TIP offers a 4th/5th Grade Talent Search and a 7th Grade Talent search. These talent searches help gifted students and their families find out how advanced the students' abilities truly are. Traditional testing often fails to measure the variation among many gifted students who reach the upper limits of scoring on grade-level exams. By taking advanced above-level (at least two years above a student's current grade placement) testing through Duke TIP's talent searches, gifted students and their families gain a far better understanding of where the student stands in relation to his/her gifted peers and what level of educational challenge is appropriate.

Eligible students must have scored at the 90th percentile or above on a grade level standardized achievement, aptitude, or mental ability test or approved state criterion referenced test.
