Classes may have more advanced students than educators think
from Education Dive
Researchers at Duke University's Talent Identification Program and Johns Hopkins' Center for Talented Youth studied standardized test results to determine the portion of students performing at levels that would be expected for their peers a grade ahead of them. NPR reports 25-45 percent of students tested ahead of grade level on the NAEP test, the NWEA MAP test, the Florida Standards Assessment and Smarter Balanced tests in Wisconsin and California, and while two-thirds of middle schools reported offering acceleration by subject in 2013, there is no national data about how many students take advantage of that.
