Study Materials Relating to Grades and Grading Systems.
Smith, Lawrence G., Comp.
The validity of traditional grading practices is currently under study at Grossmont College. This report was undertaken as a working base for a committee to study the grading policy. Arguments both for and against traditional grading methods are presented in outline form. The arguments are taken from pertinent journal articles or books that are included in an annotated bibliography following the arguments. The second section of the report is a survey, in tabular form, of current grading and crediting practices in California junior colleges. In another section the results of studies concerning the rates of returns of educational expenditures are explained. Statements on credit-no-credit grading policy by 10 other California junior colleges are also included. In summary, 68 per cent of the junior colleges surveyed for this study are experimenting with some form of non-punitive grading practices. (RC)
