Duke University 7th Grade Talent Search
Duke University sponsors a 7th grade Talent Search. The purpose of the 7th Grade Talent Search is to assist young people with excellent mathematical or verbal aptitude by providing them with information about their abilities and then introducing them to a network of services and programs available.
The Talent Search identifies academically talented 7th-graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or early middle school. Candidates are identified and invited to complete either the SAT I: Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment college entrance examinations. TIP then provides the participants with comparative information concerning their academic abilities and resources for unique educational opportunities.
Students are identified in September of their 7th grade year and must score in the 95th% on the national norms of a standardized achievement test, aptitude or mental ability test in an approved subtest category. Duke University sends information to NGA in September, and this information is forwarded to parents of students who are eligible to participate.
