Pass/Fail Grading: Summary and Tentative Conclusions.
Pedrini, Bonnie C.; Pedrini, D. T.
Grading is at best a problem. Many kinds of grading have been attempted using letters, numbers, words, etc. The letter-grade techniques (typically including A,B,C,D,F) have been the most common in the United States, especially in high school and college. However, some students and faculty have been disenchanted with such techniques. Hence, other grading procedures have been tried, e.g., pass/fail and credit/no credit. In this paper, representative-data (references) are reported concerning pass/fail techniques. ERIC (CIJE and RIE) bibliographies are readily obtainable. For readers who wish to avoid the tedium of compiling bibliographies, there are on-line and off-line computer services available. An 11-item bibliography is included. (Author)
