Duke TIP honors 4th-6th graders
Posted on 05/01/2014
The Duke University 4th-6th Grade Talent Search for 2014 has honored 19 students from Floyd County Schools for their academic talent. The program identifies students across the nation who have scored in the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test, aptitude test, mental-ability test, approved state criterion-referenced test, or 125 or above on an IQ test. 

Students invited to participate in the Duke TIP program are provided with learning opportunities in a Duke summer program at Duke University or online. Students are also offered participation in writing contests and the opportunity to take EXPLORE testing through Duke.  The above-level EXPLORE testing provides insight into an individual student's academic abilities by providing measures in English, math, reading and science.
