|Abstract/Description:||"Several years ago the faculty of Allie Yniestra Elementary School of Pensacola, Florida, under the leadership of a progressive, professional principal, agreed to place the children into the various rooms of each grade according to their reading ability, the basis of judgment being the scores of the Stanford Achievement Tests given to the children during May of the previous year. Two years later, after much discussion and study, the school returned to its former method of grouping, which was simply dividing the names of the boys and girls among the various teachers of each grade. Test scores of the sixth grade children during two years of each method of grouping were carefully retained and compared. It is as a member of Yniestra faculty, and in the light of those scores, that this study of grouping was undertaken. It is the purpose of this paper to investigate the origin and need of grouping, to examine critically the different methods, and to analyze their possible effect on the objectives and functions of the elementary school of today"--Introduction.|
