Ability grouping in education
Ability grouping is a term that means places the students of equal ability in one classroom. These kinds of groups are small kinds of groups. These kinds of groups are informal groups. This kind of grouping is currently increasing in primary schools. The most familiar categories of ability grouping are between-class ability grouping and within the class ability grouping. Ability grouping sorting students based on their ability. It places the students of similar skills in the same place, so sometimes it has a very positive impact on their skills. They can learn and explore more on their skills. Their progress can begin more rapidly. The students get more opportunities for learning. They can correct their flaws by themselves. And it makes the stress of teachers a little lower. Students can gain more interest and enthusiasm in their studies. Teachers can also get a chance to teach them more. But it can make a negative impact on the students whose skills aren’t as good as others. It begins discrimination between them. The less good students can be demotivated for this kind of discrimination. It gives more opportunities to the good students and less to the mediocre or the less good students. We all know everyone can’t be equally skilled, some students understand easily and some take more time to understand a lesson. And in the field of education, no one should discriminate. All have equal rights to learn.
