WHY DUKETIP?
• The Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search helps
educators and families determine how advanced
their students’ academic abilities truly are.
• Above-level testing at least two years above a
student's current grade offers gifted students and
their families a far better understanding of how the
student compares to his or her gifted peers and
what level of educational challenge is appropriate.
