Skill-Level Grouping in Modern Mathematics K-6; Final Report.
Gilbert, Virginia; McKie, Earl
Investigated was the effect of skill-level grouping on student achievement in mathematics in a Negro neighborhood elementary school. The investigation was conducted in the Clark County School District, Nevada, during the 1968-69 school year. The mathematics program in the control school was organized and taught in self-contained classrooms by the classroom teacher. The mathematics program in the experimental school was organized by ungraded Arithmetic Skill Levels. An analysis of growth in grade equivalents suggests that students in grades two, three, and four benefited more from skill-level grouping than those in grades five and six. No conclusive evidence favoring skill-level grouping was obtained and the null hypothesis -- no difference will result between the mean achievement scores of the experimental group and the control group -- was not rejected.
