The SAGES-2 helps identify gifted K–8 students. Its three subtests sample aspects of two of the most commonly used areas for identifying gifted students: aptitude and achievement.
Aptitude is measured via the Reasoning subtest, where the student is asked to solve analogical problems by identifying relationships among pictures and figures. In the Achievement subtests, the child answers questions about language arts, social studies, math and science.
The subtests can be used to examine the relationships between aptitude and achievement.
