The Effects of Ability Grouping.
Goldberg, Miriam L.; And Others
An experimental study examined the effects of ability grouping on academic achievement of students. More than 2000 fifth and sixth grade public school students in New York City provided the data, over a two-year period, upon which the conclusions are based. It was found that ability grouping per se had no significant effect on academic achievement. The volume opens with a survey of research, then describes the design of the study. Other chapters discuss academic achievement, self attitudes; school interests and attitudes, ratings of pupil streotypes, and teacher ratings of students. The final chapter offers a summary and the conclusions, and extensive appendices present samples of the instruments and tables of data. (NH)
