Gifted Classrooms and Multiple Intelligences and assessments

I have to compile at least five references related to assessment and feedback strategies in differentiated instruction for a gifted classroom and need help with the following. 

Assume that you are a teacher in a gifted classroom with multiple intelligences represented among your students. Discuss a pre-assessment and post-assessment that would differentiate instruction to support their multiple intelligences.  How would you use feedback from these assessments to reflect upon and modify instruction within a gifted class?  Outline recommendations to colleagues about how differentiated instruction would help them in their teacher role as well as how it might improve outcomes for students.
