The Gifted Rating Scales are norm-referenced rating scales based on current theories of giftedness.  Pre-school and Kindergarten teachers complete the Pre-School/Kindergarten GRS-P form for children between the ages of 4:0 and 6:11 years. This form of GRS–P contains brief scales covering five domains: intellectual, academic readiness, motivation, creativity and artistic talent. Teachers complete six brief scales on the School-Age GRS–S form to evaluate children between the ages of 6:0 through 13:11 years who are in Years 1 – 8. The six domains include: intellectual, academic, motivation, creativity, leadership and artistic talent.
