The paper takes a strong position that the absence of a clearly demarcated nomination stage in the procedure for selecting children with the gifted potential in Nigeria is a serious drawback in the technical adequacy of the identification scheme in use. Justifying the need for an empirically validated nomination procedure for the identification of gifted children in Nigeria, an attempt is made to descriptionbe the procedure followed for developing and trying two versions of an Outstanding Students Nomination Inventory (for peers and teachers). Summary of data collated as empirical evidence of the validity and reliability of the instrument is then recommended for further national field testing and including in the instruments used for selecting gifted children in Nigeria.
