Importance of Ability Grouping in French "Colleges" and Its Impact upon Pupils' Academic Achievement.
Duru-Bellat, Marie; Mingat, Alain
Educational Research and Evaluation (An International Journal on Theory and Practice), v4 n4 p281-306 Dec 1998
Studied the prevalence and learning consequences of ability grouping in French lower secondary schools (colleges). Findings for about 30,000 students show that ability grouping is relatively widespread in France, and that the average level of the class is positively associated with student learning. For low achievers, a homogeneous class is the least favorable situation. (SLD)
