Sammanfattning: The aim of this study was to examine how gifted high school students rated their academic self-perception, attitude toward teachers, attitude toward school, goal valuation and motivation compared to a control group consisting of non-gifted high school students. A comparison between sexes was also made to examine whether they differed or not. The study also examined if any of the gifted students had accelerated by moving up one or more classes, and their experience of this. The survey was inspired by the School Attitude Assessment Survey-Revised (SAAS-R). A total of 133 students were included, of which 62 were gifted and 71 were non-gifted. The results showed that the gifted students scored significantly higher on the self-perception scale than non-gifted and significantly lower on the motivation scale. Girls scored significantly lower than boys on the self-perception scale and significantly higher on the motivation scale. These findings are consistent with the results from previous studies. Only eight of the 62 gifted students had moved up one or more classes. The majority (n=5) saw it as a positive experience. The conclusion was that there are significant differences between gifted and non-gifted high school students, but further research is needed to investigate these findings deeper.
