gifted and talented, Turkey, thematic content analysis


The aim of the study is to comprehensively examine the thesis studies and articles in the field of gifted and talented in Turkey between the years 2018-2021. Thematic content analysis method in a total of 37 articles and 28 thesis studies according to the criteria determined in the study.  A total of 65 researches were examined by considering the parameters of researches type’s, university distributions, publication years, subject, aim, keywords use, research methods, samples (type and size), data collections tools, data analysis method, results and suggestions. Theses and articles were analyzed using matrix. The data gathered was analyzed using descriptive statistical method and content analysis method.  The majorities of the studies examined were master's thesis and were designed with descriptive and mixed research methods. In the studies, STEM, module/program/activity development, environmental education, problem-based learning and project-based learning were frequently encountered, and it was aimed to develop skills and affective areas in students in related subjects. However, it was also understood that there was no consensus in the use of keywords in terms of the sample group in the studies examined. In line with all the findings, it is recommended to include values ​​education in the activities, to increase the number of experimental studies and doctoral thesis studies, and to provide a consensus on the use of keywords in order to facilitate the researchers.
