Why Celeration matters

Why "celeration" matters


Everyone is interested in being efficient with instruction, to maximize benefit to the learner and to minimize waste time and relatively inefficient teaching strategies. With special needs students, this interest is especially vital.


Eugene "Skip" Berquam, Ed.D. has put together an excellent document demonstrating how a slight change in celeration=which is the change of frequency/time can result in a significant change in skill acquisition and why using the STANDARD CELERATION CHART to measure, adjust, and make prediction in skill mastery matters.


Ex: for a skill frequency to double at a celeration of X1.05, the time is 16 weeks,

BUT by adjusting instruction to a slight increase of celeration to X1.09, the time to double is half, at 8 weeks, which reflects a potential time savings for the student and teacher of 8 weeks!
