ERO evaluated the provision for gifted and talented students in all schools where ERO carried out an education review in Term 3 and Term 4, 2007. The types of schools, school locality (urban or rural) and decile ranges of the schools are shown in Tables 1 to 3 below.
|School type||Number||Percentage of sample||National percentage |
|Full Primary (Y1-8)||131||42||44|
|Restricted Composite (Y7-10)||2||<1||<1|
Table 1 shows that the types of schools in this sample are representative of national figures.
|Locality||Number||Percentage of sample||National percentage|
Table 2 shows that the numbers of urban and rural schools in the sample is representative of national figures.
|Decile ||Number||Percentage of sample||National percentage|
|Low decile (1-3)||72||23||30|
|Middle decile (4-7)||138||44||40|
|High decile (8-10)||105||33||30|
Table 3 shows that low decile schools in the sample were slightly under-represented, in comparison to national figures, but this difference was not statistically significant.
