The Pass/Fail Option: Analysis of an Experiment in Grading.
Quann, Charles J.
This paper summarizes the author's research on the pass/fail grading system at Washington State University. Specifically, the paper presents (1) a discussion of the use of the pass/fail grading option at WSU and enrollment trends under this option first available in summer 1968 as a 3-year experiment; (2) an analysis of the questionnaire responses, which dealt with reasons for enrolling under the pass/fail option, the use of pass/fail enrollment for exploration of courses outside the major, suggestions for improvement of the pass/fail programs, and rating the importance of the continuation of the option; and (3) a comparative analysis of the academic achievement of pass/fail and non-pass/fail enrollees during the first 2 years of the WSU experiment.
