An Examination of Grouping Strategies and Their Effect on Mathematics Achievement at the Elementary Level.
Auber, Christine; And Others
This paper reviews the literature on various types of grouping strategies in order to determine which is the most effective in influencing mathematics achievement. After discussing teachers' reasons for grouping and popular grouping strategies, specific research findings on these strategies are reported. Highlights of each grouping strategy are reviewed with recommendations for practice and further research. Grouping strategies discussed include: (1) long-term static groupings, such as homogeneous, heterogeneous, and within-class ability groupings; and (2) short-term flexible groupings, such as team-assisted individualized (TAI) instruction, cooperative learning; and situational grouping. Implications are suggested. Contains 17 references. (MKR)
