Strello, Andrés; Strietholt, Rolf; Steinmann, Isa; Siepmann, Charlotte – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2021
Research to date on the effects of between-school tracking on inequalities in achievement and on performance has been inconclusive.

To address this issue, we used all accumulated data collected in the…

Muppala, Siva P. R.; Chandramohan, Balasubramanyam – Education Quarterly Reviews, 2021
We propose a new approach to classroom learning based on sequential numeral-division. It builds on the concept of trichotomy -- division of students based on creamy-level, middle-level and weaker-level students -- proposed by the present authors. A sequenced series of formative assessments can map student progress and achievement, particularly in…

Bradbury, Alice; Braun, Annette; Quick, Laura – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2021
This paper explores the practices of division in operation in primary schools in England in response to the pressures of high stakes tests at age 10/11, known as SATs. Using data from interviews with 20 primary headteachers and information from a survey of nearly 300 primary heads, we argue that the organisation of pupils in preparation for SATs…

Sheehy, Kieron; Wilson Kasule, George; Chamberlain, Liz – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2021
There is a complementarity between Uganda's aim for 'education for all' and the pedagogy indicated as underpinning Uganda's child-focused thematic curriculum. However, child-focused pedagogies are rare. The case is made that child-led research is an appropriate model for developing inclusive classroom practice. This research is the first to…
