Identifying children with high intellectual abilities aged 9 to 10 years. Ensaio: aval.pol.públ.Educ. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.89, pp.795-820.

The present study examines ongoing research into the implementation and validation of the questionnaire survey “Knowing your child,” which is aimed at the parents of children aged between 9 and 10 years. The questionnaire seeks to identify children with high intellectual abilities. The research design includes a non-experimental, cross-sectional study, and its primary aim is to confirm construct validity through factor analysis. The sample comprised 239 children from the city of Loja in Ecuador. The questionnaire (appendix) was developed as a nomination protocol for parents, initially constructed with 45 items. After the questionnaire was analyzed for construct validity, 11 items were eliminated. The final version included 36 items that were divided into 10 dimensions. Each dimension, obtained by factor analysis, has acceptable levels of reliability and validity, supported by theoretical and empirical referents. The Cronbach Alpha index derived was 0.89. Nevertheless, a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) is required.
