Description Test for Identifying Gifted Students in Mathematics (TIM3–5) has been developed by a team from the Center for Gifted Children Development and the Department of Psychology of the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University. It is a standardized psychodiagnostic method for measuring mathematical abilities in the average and above average level of pupils from 3.-5. grades of primary school, in combination with additional information (for example from comprehensive intellectual examination) is very useful in diagnosing giftedness in area of mathematic. The test has two parallel forms, which can be administered individually or in group (in paper-pencil form). However, due to the high difficulty, it is not suitable for testing of all pupils from class. In our speech, we are going to introduce the theoretical background of the test and outline how it resembles other methods and procedures commonly used in identifying giftedness, and on the contrary - what is unique for our test. We are also going to introduce selected psychometric characteristics, with emphasis on those that give clear and understandable conclusions for diagnostic work with the test.
