Iowa Acceleration Scale  

A Guide for Whole-Grade Acceleration K-8 (2nd Edition, Set of 10 IAS Forms)


Author(s): Susan G. Assouline, Ph.D., Nicholas Colangelo, Ph.D., Ann Lupkowski-Shoplik, Ph.D., Jonathan Lipscomb, Ph.D., Leslie Forstadt, Ph.D.

*Includes ONLY one set of 10 Forms and Summary and Planning Records


Designed to take personal bias out of the decision-making process when considering a child for whole-grade acceleration, the IAS was developed and piloted by the Belin-Blank Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development at the University of Iowa. It ensures that acceleration decisions are systematic, thoughtful, well-reasoned, defensible, and as objective as possible. These supplemental Forms and Summary and Planning Records are for replenishing the supply of Forms when a school has already purchased the initial kit and has used the 10 Forms that came with that kit. Second edition Forms are for schools that are using the second edition Manual.

The second edition features:

  • Clearer specifications for appropriate achievement and ability tests
  • The inclusion of results from aptitude tests
  • An enhanced and clarified scoring system
  • New case examples of student acceleration
  • Updated references about current acceleration research studies
