Acceptability of Non-Traditional Grading: Views of College and University Admission Officers and Prospective Employers.
Morishima, James K.; And Others
This detailed report presents the results of a study of the evaluation of traditional and several types of nontraditional grading systems. Questionnaires were distributed to a sample of admission and employment officers describing various grading systems. Responses were received from 44% of the graduate departments, from 76% of the undergraduate institutions, and from 20% of the employers. The respondents indicated the relative acceptability of the systems to their own institutions and organizations. In addition, information was obtained on the kinds of supplementary record desired, and on how academic records were handled. Results are recorded in tabular and discussion form. (Author/MJM)
