Kingore Observation Inventory, 3rd ed.

Equitable Practices to Recognize and Differentiate for High Ability

Increase recognition of
underrepresented populations!

The KOI’s emphasis on differentiation and impacting teacher practice is a major distinction between the KOI and other teacher-centered identification tools. It is unique because of the number of students who benefit from this process. It fosters robust differentiation and support for all learners as it promotes recognition of students with high aptitude or high ability. The KOI provides a common language and economical process that neither disrupts classroom instruction nor demands expensive materials.

  • Recognize specific, observable characteristics of giftedness and high aptitude in the general population as well as in low-income, linguistically different, and culturally different populations.
  • Experience the different ways students manifest giftedness in similar learning environments.
  • Explore hundreds of effective learning experiences and techniques that integrate into curriculum to support and nurture talents.
