In this discourse the writer intends to present the effects of under-ageness and acceleration on fourteen Prairie View College students. It is also the purpose of the writer to show whether under-ageness is advantageous or disadvantageous to these fourteen Prairie View College students. The writer, in securing his information, used the personal investigation method. This method was used because the writer felt that he could secure more reliable and confidential information from his subjects. All of his subjects were located on the college campus which also made it convenient for him to use the personal investigation method. There have been many heated discussions as to what the normal age grade progress for a normal boy or girl should be . For the purpose of this study, six years of age is regarded as the normal age for a first grade pupil. For each additional year spent in school, the normal pupil is expected to complete an additional grade. Advancement at a more rapid rate than indicated is counted "accelerated" by the number of years the advancement deviates from standard set. Advancement at a less rapid rate than that indicated above is counted as "retarded" by the number of years the lack of advancement deviates from the standard set.
