The problem of the present study was to observe practices in adjustment to individual differences in certain grades in the Lincoln Public Schools. A brief review of some of the literatures was made in Chapter II. This concerned attempts in adjustments to individual differences which have been made such as multiple track plans, homogeneous groupings, unit plans and other less comprehensive forms of adjustment. The chapters dealing with material gathered were Chapter III, IV and V. Observations were made in the three grades, one, three and five in four elementary schools of the city which are located in different socio-economic sections. The grades were considered separately in the chapters.
