Self-Grading versus External Proctoring: A Counterbalanced Comparison.
Conard, C. J.; And Others
This study compared external proctoring and student self-grading in a personalized child development course. The experiment used a counterbalanced experimental design and two traditional control groups. Survey data and objective preferences indicated that students preferred self-grading to proctor-grading. However, students reported that proctor-grading prepared them better for major review exams. Although this belief was not supported by hour exam data from the two counterbalanced groups, results from the traditional control groups indicated that self-grading produced performance that was 10 percentage points lower than proctor-grading. These results are discussed in terms of the use of self-grading procedures in self-paced, individualized courses. (Author)
