GT Showcase

The Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP) provides a series of TEKS-based performance tasks and assessments for gifted and talented (G/T) students in grades K-12. These interdisciplinary research units are implemented by Killeen ISD to enrich the G/T program and require students to:
  • Identify and define a research problem or question
  • Review existing evidence
  • Refine their research question
  • Develop a research proposal
  • Carry out research
  • Analyze information and data gathered
  • Report findings through a product or performance
Below is a showcase of the research projects students in KISD produced or performed during the school year.
