The SAGES II Assessment and Cognitive Abilities Test
Byck uses the Screening Assessment for Gifted Elementary Students (SAGES-2) the and Cognitive Abilities Test to identify students in P1 through grade five for TAG services. Students test for the JCPS Advance Program in grades three, four, and five. Byck is a designated JCPS Advance Program site.

Why do we attempt to identify potentially gifted students at an early age and to provide services to meet their unique needs? First, research indicates that it is important to stimulate a child’s brain at an early age. Second, gifted children who experience frustration and boredom in the Primary grades may “go underground” in the Intermediate grades.

Screening Assessment for gifted elementary students is a cognitive abilities test used to indentify students in P1 through grade five for TAG services. Students test for the JCPS Advance Program in grades three, four, and five.
