A recent Thomas B. Fordham Institute report examines the achievement growth of Ohio's "early high achievers," some of whom are identified as gifted and talented (GT). Its conclusion-which was examined in a new review-was that closing the "gifted identification gap" can help to close the "excellence gap."

Eunice Han and Yongmei Ni of the University of Utah reviewed Ohio's Lost Einsteins: The Inequitable Outcomes of Early High Achievers. They found that the report's data limitations and research design did not support a causal inference on the effectiveness of GT identification.
