Marking and Reporting Pupil Progress. Research Summary 1970-71.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
This is a research summary of aspects of marking and reporting pupil progress: practices, philosophies of marking, purposes, assets, and liabilities of various marking and reporting practices. The summary is divided into three sections: a) determining and reporting pupil progress (included are descriptions of marking purposes and practices and factors that influence marking), b) methods of reporting, and c) research on marking and reporting. Listed in this last section are statistics and descriptions of various studies; the latter cover the grading of arithmetic, the grading behavior of a college faculty, grades as they reinforce contingencies and attitude changes, student reactions to course grades, and many others. The summary concludes with a plea for a greater understanding of the reportage system and the need for more attention given to the content (rather than the method) of reports. (JA)
