    Park, G., Lubinski, D., & Benbow, C. P. (under review). When less is more: Effects of grade skipping on adult STEM accomplishments among mathematically precocious youth. (2011)

    'Summary:
    Results from each phase of this study are supportive of key hypotheses of the
    time-saving theory (Pressey, 1946b), suggesting that grade-based acceleration, appro-
    priately applied with mathematically precocious individuals, can have lasting e ects
    on the productivity of those pursuing STEM fi elds. The fi rst phase, summarized by Fig-
    ure 6, reinforces past fi ndings in the acceleration literature (e.g., Flesher & Pressey,
    1955; Pressey, 1967; Swiatek & Benbow, 1991; Wai et al., 2010; Bleske-Rechek et
    al., 2004). As in these previous studies of grade-based acceleration, grade skippers
    were more likely to pursue advanced degrees and reach important career milestones
    related to success in STEM careers, such as STEM publications and patents. The
    current study not only replicates these ndings, it strengthens them by finding simi-
    lar patterns of results under the much stricter methodological controls granted by the
    matching procedure.'

    Nice!

    I'm curious to read the full article now, to see what the authors speculate as to causation.
