Abstract: Special programs for gifted and talented students have been mandated by the state of North Carolina under the Creech Bill. Evaluation may be the very lifesaving tool for special programs. The purpose of this study was to do a theoretical analysis of several educational evaluation models and utilize one as a guide for examining the Gifted and Talented Program of the Greensboro City Schools. Chapter I explained the purpose of the study, its scope, and its limitations. Various terms used in the study were defined and explained. Chapter II further defined the term evaluation and explained its importance. Several guidelines and models for evaluating educational programs were analyzed and explained. Special problems and issues that have relevance when evaluating programs for gifted and talented students were discussed with references to pertinent literature studies. Keeping in mind the models and the problems involved in evaluation, the examiner selected the Renzulli and Ward DESDEG Model to apply to the actual evaluation of the Greensboro City Schools' Gifted and Talented Program.
