Abstract

First/second-grade combination classrooms were examined for the 1987-88 and 1988-89 school years. The selection of students was different in the two schools studied. School A chose students based on their academic ability. Therefore, the high first graders were placed with the low second graders. In contrast. School B chose students based on the quality of their independent work. These students listen and follow directions quickly and correctly. They also are capable of completing tasks despite distractions. The data didn't provide any generalizations regarding the relationship between selection and instruction, and academic achievement of students of first/second-grade combination classrooms. However, a need for policy concerning combination classrooms was established. Recommendations for further research were also given.
