Mixed Age Grouping

Scope Note: 
Grouping children or students so that the chronological age span is greater than one year -- the primary purpose is to maximize age-group interaction and cooperation (Note: Do not confuse with "Nongraded Instructional Grouping" or "Multigraded Classes," both typically including various ages, but not necessarily for the purpose of age-group mixing)
