Abstract
The purpose of the present study was twofold: (a) to examine what PASS processes differentiate gifted children from chronological-age controls and (b) to examine what PASS processes predict reading and mathematics achievement. Twenty-six gifted children (13 females; mean age = 10 years and four 4 months, SD = .94) and 26 controls (10 females; mean age = 10 years and 7 months, SD = .94) were assessed on Cognitive Assessment System (Naglieri & Das, 1997), Broad Reading, and Broad Mathematics (Woodcock, McGrew, & Mather, 2001). Results showed that the groups differed significantly on simultaneous and successive processing. Whereas planning, simultaneous, and successive processing were unique predictors of reading, planning and simultaneous processing were unique predictors of mathematics. These findings suggest that gifted children have a more efficient information processing system that influences how fast they encode incoming information and recode existing information.
