Administration of the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale (4th ed.) to 60 elementary school students resulted in means consistent with their "gifted" status. With two exceptions subtest "g" factor loadings from these children are similar to the g factor loadings from the standardization sample. An orthogonal rotation, varimax solution, resulted in four factors with eigenvalues greater than 1. Like the standardization sample, these gifted children yielded some subtest loadings which are consistent with the Stanford-Binet "model"; also like the standardization sample, not all the subtests loadings agreed with the model-based assignment. Results from a second factor analysis, a LISREL confirmatory analysis, also only partially supported the Binet model. Implications for interpretation are discussed.
