Research on the social and cognitive effects of grouping students in mixed-abilities versus same-abilities classrooms is gaining increasing interest among practitioners and researchers In hopes of attaining higher scores many schools have adopted homogeneous ability grouping Unlike them our school has adopted the policy of mixed ability classes where students of different academic abilities study together in the same class Indeed there is a lot of research in favor of heterogeneous ability grouping but is this beneficial to us Under this policy students can have the opportunity to learn interacting and communicating with different people People in the real world always have to learn to interact with others of differing abilities Schools should offer learning experiences guided by well-trained professional educators focusing on authentic real-world outcomes even if sometimes those outcomes cannot be measured with grades or standardized test scores Good children in any case are more important than good grades Students under this policy can learn communication skills and have a better picture of how a society works in advance Students all learn at a different rate and they all learn in a different style or manner However they all can learn something important from each other under this policy no matter what students various IQs or abilities are That is one of the benefits of interacting in a classroom environment - students learn from each other as well as from the teacher Also the academically stronger students can increase the incentive of the weaker students to work harder Seeing the academically stronger students getting good results the weaker students will probably follow their examples and start to work harder too This policy can also prevent weaker students to have low expectations or perceptions on themselves If they are grouped based on their abilities it may convince someone who is in a class based on lower ability that heshe is dumb or limited and should not expect to achieve
