Pass-Fail Grading Systems: A Literature Review.
What began as a review of Pass-Fail ended as a comment on the evaluation schema of student academic performance. "Standards,""Evaluation" and "Grades" are defined. A brief history of grading among early North American institutions of higher learning is compared to precursory practices in Europe. The validity and reliability of traditional grades are examined. Finally, the original review of the literature on Pass-Fail is presented. (Author)
