|dc.description.abstract||The purpose of this study has been to compare the advantages and
disadvantages of ability grouped classes with that of heterogeneous grouping
of students in primary schools, and secondly, to investigate empirically the
effects of homogeneous grouping on standard 5 pupils' attitudes towards
The conclusion reached from the study of literature was that there is still
widespread disagreement among researchers on this topic. It seems as if a
combination of both grouping methods may be the answer to the grouping
problem. Analysis of the effects of alternative grouping methods suggests that
ability grouping Is most effective when done for only a few subjects, with
students remaining In heterogeneous classes for most of the lime.
From the research data it was concluded that homogeneous grouping affected
only the low achievers' attitudes positively, while that of high achievers had
not statistically significant been affected. The attitudes or students in the
heterogeneous class had also not been affected.
II was concluded further that there was no connection between Intelligence
and grouping of students with regard to pupils' altitudes. There was also no
connection between socio-economic status and grouping methods with regard
to pupils' attitudes.
II cannot therefore be said that pupils' altitudes towards school matters are
being affected by grouping practices.||en_US
