Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

Tracking and ability grouping have long been controversial topics in American education. Researchers have been collecting data on their effects for almost three quarters of a century and still disagree about their merits (Kulik and Kulik, 1987). Educators and policy makers have argued about the effects of ability grouping and tracking for an even longer time. Reviewers of research cannot reach an agreement about the value of homogeneous grouping, yet in 1985 it was determined that in 77 percent of all American schools, ability grouping and tracking were practiced to some degree (Dawson, 1987).
