Ability Grouping and Mixed-Ability Grouping in Secondary Schools. Educational Issues Review No. 1.
Morrison, C. M.
This report on ability grouping or "streaming" in secondary schools is an overview of research on the subject done in schools in many different countries. Referring to an extensive bibliography, the author gives examples of conclusions reached through observation and experiment on the part of educators. The complexity of the subject is revealed by the radically differing opinions on the validity, success, or failure of ability grouping at this educational level. (JD)
