Williams, Jessica M.; Cera Guy, Jade N. M. T.; Shore, Bruce M. – Roeper Review, 2019
High-achieving students' work-alone preference has been shown to be largely false and to depend on the learning context.

Mullet, Dianna R.; Rinn, Anne N. – Roeper Review, 2015
Many gifted characteristics overlap the symptoms of attention deficity-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The potential for the misdiagnosis of giftedness as ADHD exists, but so does the potential for a dual diagnosis of giftedness and ADHD. A decade after the misdiagnosis of giftedness as ADHD was first investigated we examine lessons learned…

Although underachieving gifted students have been largely ignored in empirical research, there has been a modest surge of interest in describing and "treating" this population in recent years. It is estimated that nearly half of gifted youth achieve significantly below their potential. In the realm of school psychology, gifted children have…
