Abstract : An attempt was made to discover the best predictor of creative scientific talent in high school students. A new study was undertaken with a three-fold purpose: (1) to focus on improving the spread of criterion rating scores over those obtained in our first study of the research participation programs; (2) to obtain cross validities on the best predictors used in the previous summer's study; and (3) to provide ourselves an opportunity to try out a few new predictor instruments.
