Nongraded Schools. Educational Management Review Series Number 16.
Procedures that have been developed for switching from a graded to a nongraded pattern of school organization have frequently failed to live up to their expectations. There appears to be a need for more clearly defined procedures and purposeful innovation as distinct from change for its own sake. Nongrading should serve to provide alternative learning environments for the student rather than to facilitate the roles of the teacher and the administrator. The literature in this review challenges each school to implement the basic concept by devising those methods particularly suited to its situation. Guides to the implementation process emphasize the central role of administrative leadership. Several case studies show how schools have worked with the challenge of nongrading. (Author)
