Hanaa AL-MOMANİ [1] , Alia AL-OWEİDİ [2]


This study aimed at checking the effectiveness of Renzulli Scale for Rating the Behavioral Characteristics (3rd Ed.) of Gifted Students aged from (12 – 18). In order to achieve the goal, the scale was translated and prepared in its final form. The Sample of the study consisted of (478) students. (304) of them are normal and (174) are gifted. Making sure of reliability of significance of the scale was through content validity where the percentage of the reviewers was between (80 – 100%). Also The factor validity showed that correlation coefficient was high and strong at the same time the concurrent validity was counted between Renzulli Scale for the behavioral characteristics and TONY Test where the correlation coefficient was (0.389). Correlation coefficient between Renzulli Scale and Torrance test (0.475) which is the discrimination index between normal and gifted reached correlation coefficient between the item and the sub domain (0.44 – 0.59). At the same time checking of the significance of the reliability of the scale by reliability of assessors (0.89) in total degree, and Cronbach alpha internal consistence where it reached on the whole degree (0.99). Which means high significant in general.
