John Hattie has a book called visible learning. In it, he researched thousands of kids. If something has an effect size of .4 it is good and you can expect a year’s growth. Well ability grouping has an effect size of .12 grade wide and .16 class wide. This is why the sisters pull students based on their skill needs not reading levels (.49 effect size).
Also, one thing that has a HUGE effect is building relationships. When you switch classes so much (especially with younger kids) it is VERY difficult to build relationships. I do not remember the effect size, ,but we discussed it in depth at my school because we do not build relationships like we need to because of how much we switch classes in 1, 2, and 3 grade (but really all grade levels have the same effect).
