Alternative Grading Systems. The Practitioner, Vol. III, No. 3.
De Leonibus, Nancy; Thomson, Scott
After examining some of the pros and cons of traditional grading, the demands colleges make on grading practices, and the responses of people interested in grading, a number of examples of operating alternative systems are given. The alternatives include a dual (pass/withdraw grading in some courses, traditional grading in others) system, a weighted system, a pass/fail system, and a system of written evaluations. (IRT)
