Analysis of Effects of Placement Exam Scores on Grading Practices: A Thwarted Esoteric Study.
Roberts, Frank C.
The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of entrance examination scores, used for placement, on grading practices of teachers at Antelope Valley College (California). Correlations between students' GPA and their entrance exam scores were calculated. These were compared with correlations between grades given by 10 instructors and the students' entrance exam scores to determine whether prior knowledge of a student's score on the entrance exam had any effect on the instructor's grading practices. It was concluded that among the sample teachers studied, there was little, if any, effect. (RN)
