Example text

Definitions used in rural programs should be broad-based because it is important to be expansive when identifying arts performance levels in populations of rural students who do not have previous learning experiences in the visual arts. Restrictive identification measures, such as specific creativity or achievement test scores, often are used in urban or suburban school districts. Certainly, such cutoff scores would not be appropriate to use in most rural schools, particularly those serving economically disadvantaged and/or ethnically diverse students.

A high degree of intelligence has been claimed as necessary for acquiring the kinds of advanced techniques and skills required for superior arts performance (Luca & Allen, 1974: Schubert, 1973). 23 Several researchers have developed creativity tests, and creativity has become a byword in the education of high-ability students. Originally, creativity tests were used to measure general problemsolving abilities applicable to various situations. Then some authors developed instruments to help identify creativity of artistically talented students.

Many have argued that talent in art should be conceived as normally distributed among all students and adults. In 1977 and 1981, the National Assessment of Educational Progress, and in 1998, the National Center for Educational Statistics, reported normally distributed results of arts examinations of national samples of 9-, 13-, and 17-year-old students. Professional acceptance of the concept of visual arts talent as normally distributed has the potential to lead to new, and substantially different, identification criteria and procedures and a more open-ended definition of talent.
