Toward Excellence in Teaching: Grading Practices.
Gentile, J. Ronald
A comparison is drawn between norm-referenced (or competitive) and criterion-referenced testing procedures as used for the purpose of assessing and grading knowledge gained from teaching. It is argued that competitive or norm-referenced grading practices are sadistic, unethical, statistically unsound, and irrelevant to course objectives. Criterion-referenced procedures are advocated as alternatives which avoid the problems of norm-referenced testing. (Author)
