Acceleration: What We Do vs. What We Know.
Rogers, Karen B.; Kimpston, Richard D.
Educational Leadership, v50 n2 p58-61 Oct 1992
Although previous reviews of acceleration outcomes have been markedly positive, practitioners have markedly negative perceptions of acceleration's efficacy. This article reviews and evaluates academic, social, and emotional benefits of early school entrance, grade skipping, nongraded classrooms, curriculum compacting, grade telescoping, concurrent enrollment (in school and college), subject acceleration, advanced placement, mentorship, credit by examination, and early college admission.
