Ability Grouping and Sectioning


This page has been setup to share information regarding ability grouping, sectioning, and resectioning practices at West Point. Several departments practice at least some limited ability grouping (sectioning, resectioning), particularly within plebe courses, based on placement tests or early term grades. Below may be found several papers that discuss the pros and cons of ability grouping and, when used, how the benefits can be maximized. Other related documents and information slides will be added when they become available.
