Term Definition
banding

broad banding is an approach to grouping learners where perceived ability is not the only criterion used although it may be the most significant. Other factors in constructing groups may be influential such as gender racial and ethnic balance as well as the perceived motivation effort and behaviour of the learners involved (see mixed ability setting streaming).
