Group work in education; Mixed ability grouping in education;
The dilemma of deciding the most effective means of grouping students for learning activities has been a controversial issue in education for many decades (Manning & Lucking, 1990). Traditionally schools have grouped students by achievement levels and/or perceived ability. Recently, however, ability grouping has been questioned in regard to its ability to provide quality and equitable education for all students, especially those placed in Iowa and middle-ability groups (French & Rothman, 1990).
