Human intelligence and talent are notions that have been studied in various disciplines like psychology and education overtime. Developing better understanding on these concepts pass through self-exploration of mankind and researchers use fundamental and complex scientific process skills in this process. In this regard, the study aims at developing a measurement tool by which indicators of gifted and talented students can be observed in a valid and reliable way. The research hypothesized four factored giftedness structures and then following technical operations and statistical computations were performed. Item poll was created after an extended literature review and analysis of existing evaluation scales. Items were revised, modified, improved and probable problematic ones were discarded throughout pilot study, and final template of the scale was obtained. Data was collected from 258 preschool/kindergarten children in Antalya province. Findings revealed sufficient and strong evidence for validity and reliability that the measurement tool developed was theoretically supported and a good measure of giftedness.
