Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

This study examined the perceptions of a group of preadolescent males and females who were enrolled in academic replacement programs. The targeted issues were the expectations of parents, teachers, and peers as they related to the students' giftedness. Data were collected using a questionnaire and results were compared by gender. Both males and females expressed that parents, teachers, and peers outside the classroom held exaggerated expectations. Males, much more than females, perceived inflated expectations from parents. The impact of these findings on gifted programming is discussed and recommendations are made for further research and for the continued development of comprehensive approaches to gifted education.
