Macy, a gifted child scoring poorly on standardized tests
Macy is extremely bright and learned to read on her own at age four. She is now five years old and reading at a second-grade level. Since Macy likes learning, she draws and writes her own stories at home for fun. At school Macy gets excellent grades and receives compliments from her teacher. However, one day there is a standardized test and Macy performs below expectations in reading and writing. Macy’s parents are flabbergasted with her low test score.
