An Alternative to the Traditional Grading System.
Galvez, Ferdinand V.
The purpose of this practicum was to change the grading policy in the San Juan Unified School District (California) through a two-state process. The first stage was to change the traditional ABCDF grading system to a three-scale grading system in one high school, one intermediate school, and six elementary schools serving the same attendance area. The change was accomplished with some variations in the three-scale grading system and with the high school using both systems. The second stage was to focus on the grading controversy on a districtwide basis by involving the San Juan Teachers Association to negotiate with the Board of Education for a district task force to study the grading practice at all grade levels throughout the district. The results of the study provided the rationale for a recommendation to change the present grading policy. A new policy was adopted by the Board of Education in March 1975. (Author)
