GRADING IN THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE--A PROPOSAL.
COLLINS, CHARLES C.
THIS PAPER PRESENTS A CASE FOR MAKING JUNIOR COLLEGE GRADING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES COMPATIBLE WITH THE STATED PURPOSES OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE. IT LISTS SOME HISTORIC AND PERSONAL PHILOSOPHIC ASSUMPTIONS REGARDING PURPOSES. THE INCOMPATIBILITY OF THE GRADING PRACTICES WITH THESE PURPOSES IS REVIEWED THROUGH SOME STUDIES MADE AT GROSSMONT COLLEGE, WHICH INDICATED THAT 43 PERCENT OF ALL STUDENTS IN 1964 WERE DISQUALIFIED OR PLACED ON PROBATION. THE AUTHOR PROPOSES THAT THE A, B, AND C GRADES BE MAINTAINED AS PARALLEL TO STATE COLLEGE STANDARDS. A GRADE OF D WOULD BE PASSING BUT NOT RECOMMENDED FOR TRANSFER TO A 4-YEAR COLLEGE, AND F WOULD CONTINUE TO MEAN FAILURE. A GRADE OF B SHOULD CONTINUE TO COMPENSATE FOR D IN COMPUTING GRADE POINT AVERAGE FOR TRANSFER ELIGIBILITY. A NEW GRADE COULD INDICATE THAT THE STUDENT PROFITED, BUT NOT AT A LEVEL RECOMMENDING ADVANCEMENT TO THE NEXT COURSE OR INSTITUTION. BY THIS GRADING SYSTEM THE ASSOCIATE DEGREE WOULD BE AWARDED TO ANY STUDENT WHO MET ALL COURSE REQUIREMENTS AT D LEVEL OR ABOVE. (DE)
