Reis, Sally M.; Westberg, Karen L.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v5 n4 p7-18 Sum 1994
This study investigated policies about the use of content acceleration and grade skipping for gifted students in middle and secondary schools by 105 school districts. Results indicated that only 15% of responding districts had formal policies about grade skipping, whereas 57% had informal policies effectively preventing grade skipping. Formal content acceleration policies were likewise rare and/or vague. (Author/PB)
