Come and hear the results of the RC’s longitudinal alumni study.
Ed Taylor, Ph.D., Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs
Susan G. Assouline is the director of the University of Iowa Belin-Blank Center and a professor of school psychology. She is especially interested in identification of academic talent in elementary students and is co-author (with Ann Shoplik) of both editions of Developing Math Talent: A Comprehensive Guide to Math Education for Gifted Students in Elementary and Middle School. As well, she is co-developer of the Iowa Acceleration Scale, a tool designed to guide educators and parents through decisions about grade-skipping students. She is a leading expert on the decision-making process for acceleration and has consulted on several hundred acceleration cases. She is the lead editor/author (with Nicholas Colangelo, Joyce VanTassel-Baska, and Ann Lupkowski Shoplik) of A Nation Empowered: Evidence Trumps Excuses Holding Back America’s Brightest Students, which is the forthcoming update to the 2004 watershed publication, A Nation Deceived: How Schools Hold Back America’s Brightest Students.
“Longitudinal Acceleration Research: Is It Relevant?”
Absolutely! Only a small number of people are truly excited about the phrase, “longitudinal research.” If you are not yet among those who want to delve into the research, you will be after hearing the results of this investigation. You will gain insights that are immediately applicable and also can impact your- and our- future.
