A multi-grade classroom is where a teacher teaches more than one grade at the same time in the same classroom. This approach is essential, especially in remote regions with small populations and in schools that lack teachers or classrooms. Multi-grade teaching is also a way of improving teacher deployment and student-teacher ratios and is useful for teachers who want to differentiate the learning for children with varied competencies. In Probolinggo, East Java, INOVASI is testing this approach in the classroom. This pilot finished in July 2019.
