This study aimed to standardize and develop the multiple cognitive abilities tests of the gifted students in the university and to study its psychometric characteristics. To achieve the goal, the test was applied to a sample of 714 students; (male =264) and (female= 450); they were drawn from some theoretical and applied colleges, age ranged between 18-25 years. The results showed that the test had a strong factor analysis structure, with all items under the component factors; the test showed high consistency coefficients ranging from (0.69 to 0.89). The results also showed that the test achieved high correlation coefficients with Raven’s test ranged between (0.55-0.94); and the cumulative rates of students ranged between (0.56-0.77). The results also revealed high Kuder-Richardson coefficient ranged between ((0.61-0.83, spearman – Brown coefficient ranged between 0.61-0.83)), and high test- retest coefficient. A cut-point to identify gifted students was defined. Finally, the results revealed that there were no significant differences between male and female student on test, where there were differences according to student's specialization to the favor of scientific field, and according to the student's academic level to the favor of the high classes.
