As an educational intervention, acceleration is decidedly effective for high-ability students. The research support for acceleration that has accumulated over many decades is robust and consistent and allows us to confidently state that carefully planned acceleration decisions are successful. Both grade-based and content-based acceleration are…

Cifarelli, Victor; Goodson-Espy, Tracy; Chae, Jeong-Lim – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
This paper reports results from a study of self-regulated problem solving actions of students enrolled in College Algebra (N = 139). The study examined the associations between the expressed mathematical beliefs of students and the students' self-regulated actions in solving mathematics problems. The research questions are: (a) What are some…

Rudasill, Kathleen Moritz; Callahan, Carolyn M. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
The purpose of this study is to examine the contribution of gender to the academic self-perceptions of ability and related coursework plans for high school and college across academically advanced students. Participants were academically advanced students (N = 447) from grades 5 to 12. Findings revealed that (a) girls' self-perceptions of ability…

My Class Activities (MCA) is an instrument that has been used for evaluation of university-based Saturday enrichment programs, but was originally normed using students in regular schools. A sample of MCA scores from 826 students in grades 3-8 from a Saturday enrichment program was used. Four different MCA models were evaluated: (a) the original…

Miller, Rachelle; Gentry, Marcia – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
Enrichment programs can provide various social and academic benefits for high-potential learners. However, students from low-income families receive fewer opportunities for academic enrichment than students from higher income backgrounds. This qualitative study examined the experiences and perceptions of high-potential students from low-income…

Subotnik, Rena F.; Edmiston, Ashley M.; Cook, Lucas; Ross, Michael D. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
The mentoring component of the American Psychological Association Catalyst Program, and the Pinnacle Model upon which it was built, was derived from Bloom's (1985) model of talent development. According to Bloom and his associates, optimal instruction for talent development takes place in three stages. During the first stage, young people are…

Chamberlin, Scott A. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
Several decades ago, V. A. Krutetskii conducted a multiyear study to investigate the various types of thinking that academically advanced, or as he called them, gifted mathematicians used. Following an in-depth look at Krutetskii's nine ways of thinking, a model is proposed that will provide direction for teachers in selecting problems. The model…

Heilbronner, Nancy N.; Connell, Elizabeth E.; Dobyns, Sally M.; Reis, Sally M. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
This study explored the differences between students who remained at one early college acceleration program and those who left. Students who left appeared to seek what they perceived as a greater academic challenge or more specialized academic majors than were provided by the host college, a phenomenon that lends credence to the notion of positive…

McCoach, D. Betsy; Goldstein, Jessica; Behuniak, Peter; Reis, Sally M.; Black, Anne C.; Sullivan, Erin E.; Rambo, Karen – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
In this study, we predicted achievement based on a variety of school demographic and background variables and identified schools that had achievement profiles that exceeded or fell short of their expected achievement levels. We identified schools that were over- or underperforming and surveyed parents, teachers, and administrators in an effort to…

Kover, David J.; Worrell, Frank C. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
For many students, school is a forward-looking endeavor, with implications for future educational opportunity, job prospects, and financial success. How does believing that school is linked to a desired future outcome--known as an instrumentality belief--influence motivation? A number of studies have indicated that rewards, or other concerns that…

Nihalani, Priya K.; Wilson, Hope E.; Thomas, Gregory; Robinson, Daniel H. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
The notion that greater learning outcomes will be achieved if the cognitive work is distributed amongst a group of individuals working together versus working alone has received mixed support when explored empirically (e.g., Daiute & Dalton 1993; Johnson & Johnson, 1991). This study examined the relationship between small-group…

Won, Seoung Joun; Han, Seunghee – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
This study examined the relationships between American and South Korean students' achievement and their time spent in out-of-school activities. Analyzing nationally representative data for 8,912 U.S. and 5,309 Korean middle school students from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2003, we found differences in…

Thomson, Dana L. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
Online learning programs have the potential to provide gifted students expanded access to advanced courses, but little research has been conducted on how well or in what ways the online environment is a good match for gifted students. The study presented here is an in depth qualitative and quantitative investigation of the perceptions and…

Missett, Tracy C.; Reed, Christine B.; Scot, Tammy P.; Callahan, Carolyn M.; Slade, Mary – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
Researchers increasingly embrace online courses to compensate for lack of access to educational opportunities otherwise available in traditional school settings. Researchers also recommend alternatives to traditional AP coursework to better meet the diverse learning styles and needs of advanced learners. These recommendations have particular…
