Olağanüstü Üstün Yetenekli Öğrencilerin Eğitim Sürecinde Radikal Hızlandırma ve Türkiye'nin Durumu

Üstün yetenekli öğrencilerin akademik, sosyal ve duygusal gereksinimlerini karşılamak için birçok program uygulanmaktadır. Üstün yetenekli öğrencilerin akranlarından üç ya da daha fazla yıl önce üniversiteye girmelerini sağlayan radikal hızlandırma bunlardan biridir. İlk olarak 1971 yılında uygulanmaya başlayan radikal hızlandırma, halen Birleşik Devletler'in, Asya ve Avrupa ülkelerinin birçok üniversitesinde uygulanmaktadır. Radikal hızlandırmanın üstün yetenekli bireylerde olumsuz bir etkisinin olmadığı, aksine önemli kazanımlar sağladığı ile ilgili birçok araştırma bulunmaktadır. Bu çalışmada; radikal hızlandırmanın ne olduğu, üstün yetenekli bireylerdeki kazanımları ve uygulamasıyla ilgili öneriler incelenmiştir. Ülkelerin radikal hızlandırma durumları yanında Türkiye'nin yasal düzenlemeleri sunulmuştur.
