Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The central message of this review is that nothing about homogeneous ability grouping has been established with certainty. It seems that only the emphasis of the reviews has changed with the passing years. The earlier reviews seem to indicate that homogeneous ability grouping is effective and should be considered as a teaching strategy. The more recent reviews seem to indicate that homogeneous ability grouping is not effective and, in fact, can be potentially harmful to the student population. In today's era of equal opportunity, the tide has gradually turned against homogeneous ability grouping. Today's reviews focus on the possible negative effects of homogeneous ability grouping.
