The Effects of Ability Grouping on Student Achievement and Resource Allocation in Secondary Schools.
Betts, Julian R.; Shkolnik, Jamie L.
Economics of Education Review, v19 n1 p1-15 Feb 2000
Finds little or no differential effects of ability grouping for high-, average-, or low-achieving students, based on data from a 1992 longitudinal study. Examination of three school inputs (class size, teacher education, and teacher experience) indicates that grouping and nongrouping schools similarly tailor resources to ability levels.
