Total 84 students among the 7th grader in the ability grouping classes of the selected school constituted the sample of the study. “Science Education achievement test” developed by the researchers was used for data collection. Co-variance analysis was performed for analyzing the data gathered in the study. Significant differences were found among the ability grouping classes with regard to achievement test scores (p=.000). The difference was observed between high-medium grouping classes, high-low grouping classes and medium-low grouping classes.
