Equivalence of Grades in Multisection Courses.
Doerann, Judith A.
This report investigates the equivalence of grades in multisection courses. Ten courses at Indiana University were identified for this study from many undergraduate, multisection courses offered in the fall semester, 1971. An attempt was made to select courses from every school with several from a variety of departments in Arts and Sciences. For all students in each of the selected courses, grades for the course and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) totals were obtained. The mean grade and mean SAT score for each course were used as the bases to study variations among related sections. Results indicated similarity in grading patterns across sections does not appear to be universally practiced. Appendices include statistical data. (MJM)
