    I think that the assessment portions sometimes try too hard to be ""Fun"" which is great in theory, but it takes a lot of time to fill out crosswords or do mazes, when I can simply answer the question and move on. I prefer straightforward quizzes, rather than puzzles etc.

    I feel like it would be beneficial for every teacher to have more training in identifying these special populations and in addressing their special needs. I now feel that by taking courses like this one, we as educators could be more effective in meeting the needs of special populations.

    I enjoyed this course and learned many new and practical strategies to bring into my classroom for September. The pocket guide is especially useful and practical! Thanks for all the information and the positive feedback. This is a great way to learn!

    This course was a great resource for me. I would like to develop an Enrichment Extra Help for my Gifted students. This course gave me insight in how I should design this service. Thank you for a very useful course!

    The "unlimited retake" arrangement enables the evaluation process to become an extension of the learning process. I had to take the quiz a couple times in order to score 100%. However, I was more willing to take the quiz and risk incorrect answers knowing I could review & revisit my selections. I think this was a great format and I'll use it with my students as well. The advantage of using online score keeping is that the students can keep track of their progress and submit their achieved 100% scores. How liberating for both students and teachers alike! Time spent on grading tests can be devoted to curriculum differentiation development! Thanks for a great course - I really appreciate all of the resources and knowledge I can use right away preparing for my new students this fall!

    This course has strengthened the belief that gifted learners do need a different type of instruction than regular students and special ed students.

    This course has really helped me identify the difference between a gifted learner and a high achiever. I previously thought they were the same but I realize now there is a difference between them.
