An Outline of Methods of Grading Student Performance.
Pascal, C. E.; Geis, G. L.
Learning and Development, v5 n5 p1-6 Mar 1974
Comments and points representing "lore" rather than proven facts are presented in this outline to summarize some of the issues raised by critics and proponents of various methods of grading rather than presenting a summary of research. Pro and con arguments are those typically advanced by proponents or detractors and are not presented as facts. Descriptions, alleged benefits, and alleged defects are listed for: (1) traditional grading, (2) pass-fail grading, and (3) a mastery model of grading. Finally, principles of grading are suggested to which any grading system ought to adhere. (RC)
