GATE Student Identification
Ocean View Identifies GATE Students Using Multi-Criteria.
Students are recommended for the GATE Program by teachers, parents, themselves, or test score review.
Four Steps to identification:
Step 1. Pre-screen - Teacher evaluation and nomination based on a characteristic checklist.
Step 2. Evidence Collection - Teacher collection of Achievement Test Scores and work products.
Step 3. Testing - The Ravens is given to students with the basic qualifying score, based on the checklist and evidence collected.
Step 4. Final Evaluation - The Site GATE Evaluation Committee reviews all evidence and scores and makes final eligibility determination.
Students entering Ocean View who were previously identified are eligible pending Identification Verification by previous district.
Parents are sent the results and placement is made if the student qualifies for the Program.
If you have questions about your particular child or this process, please consult with your child's teacher.
