The Relationship Between Grades and Two External Measures of Academic Achievement.
A report of the University of Delaware's Committee on the Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness, recommended that the University Impact Study develop a program for assisting departments in measuring change in student knowledge, values, and abilities. The present report examines the relationship between the cumulative grade point average, an external measure of academic achievement obtained at the end of the sophomore year, and an external measure of academic achievement obtained in the senior year. It also studies change in the standing of the various curriculum groups and individual departments on the two external measures of academic performance. This can be used as a measure of the relative effectiveness of teaching in various curriculum groups or departments as compared with the rate at which the class as a whole progressed. (Author/HS)
