Lando, Bella Z.; Schneider, Barry H.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v41 n2 p44-57 Spr 1997
A study observed 32 eighth-grade students, divided according to their educational program placements, working on various tasks in either homogeneous or heterogeneous ability groups. Homogeneously congregated, gifted children exchanged constructive types of knowledge and prosocial feedback significantly more often than other homogeneous groups or heterogeneously mixed youth.
