Del shared the results of an interesting study regarding how students felt about themselves and their group mates when the groups are mixed with gifted students to varying degree. This lots of application when we talk about ALID. At the end of the day the study showed that mixed ability groups can be concerning for a variety of reasons that are necessarily linked to the achievement of the group. I prefer to hear about the results of studies rather than personal stories.
