Mixed Ability Grouping

Mixed ability grouping involves organizing students with varying levels of proficiency and skills into the same group for learning activities. This approach allows learners to benefit from peer support, diverse perspectives, and collaborative problem-solving. In language education, mixed ability groups can encourage stronger students to mentor their peers, while weaker students gain exposure to higher-level language use. Effective mixed ability grouping requires careful planning to ensure that tasks are appropriately challenging for all members and that each student has the opportunity to contribute.
