Toronto Catholic District School Board


Identification Process

Step 1:
The Otis Lennon School Ability Test, 8th Version (OLSAT8) group screening test is administered to all Grade 4 students as well as to students that are nominated in higher grades who have not previously completed the OLSAT8 test.
Step 2:
Successful candidates who meet the TCDSB criteria will be referred to an Identification, Placement, Review Committee (IPRC) for the identification of Giftedness and placement in a Gifted Program.
Psychological Assessments from Other Boards or Private Practitioners
Students with psychological assessments must meet TCDSB criteria for an identification of Giftedness. The assessment must have been administered at age 8 years, 0 months or older and must be a measure of intellectual ability that is accepted by TCDSB. A referral to the psychology provider for the school is required to review the assessment. TCDSB procedures for Gifted placement require that an IPRC take place prior to beginning the program.
