Decades of research, including rigorous meta-analyses, show that acceleration is the single most beneficial provision for students who are gifted. Ohio policy strongly supports acceleration for all advanced learners. One of the major national organizations researching and advocating acceleration has even developed a scale (The Iowa Acceleration Scale) to help families and educators discuss the appropriateness of acceleration for any student.
