ABSTRACT

The idea and intent behind the present research study was to construct and develop a valid and reliable tool in order to find out inborn talent, natural ability and learning style of kids through nursery to 2nd standard.  The developed tool was standardized as per the norms of standardization.  As tool is a vital aspect required for appropriate data collection, thus for writing the items of the tool, criterion given by Thurstone and Chave (1929), Likert (1932), Bird (1940) and Edward & Kilpatrick (1948) was considered.  The initial draft of the kids talent test consisted of 55 statements.  However, at a later stage, only 40 items were retained.  It was administered on a sample of 205 respondents.  In the research study, parents were the respondents.  They had to respond to the statements in ‘yes’ or ‘no’.  The statements were asked about their child.  There was no time limit to the questionnaire.  It diagnoses thirty two prominent talent abilities and their strength signal in terms of natural strength, above average, average and below average.  The tool was found to be valid and reliable.  This diagnostic tool will ascertain the development of natural strengths to convert them into talent by focusing on them.
