Ability Grouping: A Sorting Instrument.
Reglin, Gary
Illinois Schools Journal, v72 n1 p43-47 Fall 1992
Explores the use of ability grouping as a guideline for educational decision making. Ability grouping is often detrimental because it may foster segregation and poor teaching and lower students' self-esteem. Some studies demonstrate a slight positive effect on achievement. Higher ability students may derive more academic benefit from grouping. (SLD)
