AN INVESTIGATION OF MARKING PRACTICES OF SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS.
TERWILLIGER, JAMES S.
VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THE MARKING PRACTICES OF 39 SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS FROM TWO SCHOOLS IN METROPOLITAN NASHVILLE-DAVIDSON COUNTY, TENNESSEE, WERE STUDIED. SPECIAL MARKING EXERCISES CONTAINING STANDARD DATA ON HYPOTHETICAL STUDENTS WERE USED TO STUDY THE MARKING PRACTICES OF TEACHERS UNDER MORE UNIFORM CONDITIONS THAN EXIST IN THE CLASSROOM. A COMPARISON OF THE MARKING PRACTICES DURING ONE SEMESTER WITH THE PRACTICES DURING THE FOLLOWING SEMESTER, AFTER AN INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM, SHOWED THE INSERVICE TRAINING HAD LITTLE EFFECT ON THE TEACHERS' GRADING PRACTICES AND NO IMPACT ON THE MARKING EXERCISES. THE STUDY SHOWED THERE IS GREAT VARIABILITY IN THE AVERAGE MARKS OF INDIVIDUAL TEACHERS ON ALL TYPES OF CLASSROOM MEASURES. THE MARKING EXERCISES ALSO REVEALED THAT MOST TEACHERS INTERPRET NUMERIC DATA IN AN ABSOLUTE RATHER THAN A NORMATIVE FASHION. (AL)
