Small Classes? "What Research Says About Effective Class Sizes and Possible Alternatives to Small Classes."
Millard, Joseph E.
Research findings identifying the most effective class size are found to be inconclusive. Some studies have found small classes more effective, others have favored large classes, and some have found no differences in learning effectiveness due to class size. A number of these studies are cited and points of agreement noted. In a second section alternative organizational schemes are described that might be suitable for school systems faced with declining enrollments. (MLF)
