Wad-Ja-Get? The Grading Game in American Education.
Kirschenbaum, Howard; And Others
This book addresses, in novel form, the question of whether or not the traditional system of grading in American schools is the most educationally useful system of evaluation. Within the dramatic framework of a controversy over grading at Mapleton High School, the authors examine various issues related to the traditional grading system, including the history of grading, arguments for and against traditional grading, research findings on grading, and alternatives to traditional grading. The appendix contains an annotated bibliography of research on grading and a brief discussion of eight alternative grading systems. (JG)
