Overview

To skip, or not to skip?

The Templeton Report gives evidence for the advantages of academic acceleration, and endorses the Iowa Acceleration Scale approach.

An essential tool to guide decisions about whole-grade skip or other acceleration, the Iowa Acceleration Scale helps parents and teachers focus on objective data about the child, rather than subjective opinion. A study team, which includes the child's parents, goes through a series of questions that researchers have found to be important factors in successful acceleration. The questions have weighted responses that yield a score which then predicts (or recommends against) a grade skip or acceleration.

Feedback from years of nationwide use has resulted in a 2nd edition of this research-based, systematic, and objective guide for considering and implementing academic acceleration. Development and tested by the Belin-Blank Center at the University of Iowa, the IAS ensures that grade-skipping decisions are thoughtful, well reasoned, and defensible. The IAS is used successfully in all 50 states, Canada, and Australia.
